CAUTI

ASSESS CARE
STANDARDIZATION

Assess clinical workflows and provider behavior around catheter insertion and care. These insights inform how to best standardize CAUTI prevention.

IMPLEMENT CAUTI
PROTOCOLS

Best practice-based CAUTI protocols, informed by current care processes, are implemented. These tools are managed, tracked and measured in LogicStream.

MEASURE
RESULTS

Complete the feedback loop, measure clinical impact on Foley insertion and catheter care to determine where further improvements can be made.

Our Solution

Nearly 75% of UTIs acquired in the hospital are a result of a urinary catheter. A catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) can result in prolonged hospital stays, increased costs, and higher risk of mortality. It is estimated that each year there are 560,000 catheter associated UTIs resulting in costs of approximately $500M.

By implementing the LogicStream Platform health systems can:

  • Measure Foley placement practices and catheter care
  • Rapidly identify which clinicians, departments and hospitals are ordering Foley catheters outside of approved indications
  • Measure catheter utilization by care clinician, department and hospital to ensure appropriate ordering
  • Rapidly assess documentation around insertion and removal times
  • Eliminate non-reimbursable cost around CAUTI events
