Abstract: Sepsis is a frequently encountered, life-threatening condition with significant in-hospital mortality. A recent change to the clinical definition of sepsis introduced the need for frequent recalculation and comparison of the Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) score. Automation can overcome this clerical burden. We describe the user-centered user-interface design and usability assessment of an EHR-integrated app for a previously validated near real-time automated SOFA scoring algorithm that meets clinicians’ needs.

Learning Objective 1: After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to combine user-centered design processes and agile software development techniques to create EHR-integrated clinical "apps" that meet clinician needs.
