STOP Sepsis Collaborative


GNYHA and the United Hospital Fund (UHF) launched the STOP (Strengthening Treatment and Outcomes for Patients) Sepsis Collaborative in 2009 to support hospitals’ efforts to: improve care and reduce mortality, implement standardized processes for the recognition and treatment of sepsis, and to enhance communication and patient flow between the emergency department and other areas of the hospital.

GNYHA continues to support hospitals’ efforts through peer-to-peer collaboration about how to optimize early sepsis identification and treatment, and how to sustain and spread the achievements made during the STOP Sepsis Collaborative. GNYHA also assists hospitals’ efforts to meet requirements of the New York State sepsis regulations
