10 IHI Innovations to Improve Health and Health Care
Current average rating is 5 stars.
This curated publication highlights 10 ideas that have emerged from IHI's systematic 90-day innovation approach, including reflections on the Triple Aim, the concept of a health care Campaign, the Breakthrough Series Collaborative model, and other frameworks and fresh thinking that have been replicated around the world.
Methods for Reducing Sepsis Mortality in Emergency Departments and Inpatient Units
Current average rating is 1 stars.
North Shore-LIJ Health System (now Northwell Health) launched a strategic partnership with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to accelerate the pace of sepsis improvement, focusing initially on sepsis recognition and treatment in emergency departments (EDs). The health system reduced overall sepsis mortality by approximately 50 percent in a six-year period and increased compliance with sepsis resuscitation bundle elements in the EDs and inpatient units in 11 acute care hospitals.
Project JOINTS: What Factors Affect Bundle Adoption in a Voluntary Quality Improvement Campaign?
Current average rating is 0 stars.
This article examines how hospital adherence to quality improvement (QI) methods and hospital engagement with a large-scale QI campaign — Project JOINTS, an IHI-led initiative — could facilitate the adoption of an enhanced prevention bundle designed to reduce surgical site infection (SSI) rates after orthopaedic surgery (hip and knee arthroplasty).
Did a Quality Improvement Collaborative Make Stroke Care Better?
Current average rating is 0 stars.
In this study, 24 NHS hospitals in the Northwest of England were randomly allocated to participate either in Stroke 90:10, a quality improvement collaborative (QIC) based on the IHI Breakthrough Series (BTS) model, or in a control group giving normal care. Some aspects of stroke care modestly improved during the collaborative.
Understanding Bundles: An IHI Faculty Conversation
Current average rating is 4 stars.
IHI faculty for the Rethinking Critical Care seminar discuss and try to clarify some important and often misunderstood points about implementing care bundles (such as the Ventilator Bundle and the Central Line Bundle).
Remeasure Lactate If Initial Lactate Was Elevated Goal
Current average rating is 0 stars.
Compliance with this element in the Severe Sepsis Bundles (as part of the 6-Hour Septic Shock Bundle) is defined as the percent of patients following septic shock or lactate ≥4 mmol/L (36 mg/dl) identification for whom the lactate was repeated during the first 6 hours after presentation.
Compliance with Severe Sepsis Bundles (with the Goal of Reducing Mortality)
Current average rating is 5 stars.
Measuring compliance with the Severe Sepsis Bundles will allow your team to judge how well your institution is performing in achieving the goal of 100 percent compliance with all Severe Sepsis Bundles elements.
Severe Sepsis Bundles
Current average rating is 4 stars.
The Severe Sepsis Bundles include the Severe Sepsis 3-Hour Rescuscitation Bundle and the 6-Hour Septic Shock Bundle. The Severe Sepsis Bundles have been revised in conjunction with the updated 2012 International Guidelines for Management of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock.
Reliability: Severe Sepsis Bundles
Current average rating is 5 stars.
The percent of cases of severe sepsis and/or septic shock for whom all applicable Severe Sepsis Bundles elements are completed.

Using Care Bundles to Improve Health Care Quality
Current average rating is 4 stars.
This IHI white paper describes the history, theory of change, design concepts, and outcomes associated with the development and use of bundles — a small set of evidence-based interventions for a defined patient population and care setting — and reflects on learning over the past decade.
A Team Gives Mobility to Ventilated Patients
Current average rating is 5 stars.
Patients in critical care are usually kept immobile and heavily sedated, but there’s growing evidence that mobility can help a patient's long-term recovery.
