Connecting Sepsis Data: Serving the Public and the Patient

Session Description: 

Sepsis remains the leading cause of death in hospitals. Patients with sepsis are often readmitted to the hospital within 90 days and have increased risk of mortality for up to two years after diagnosis. Many COVID survivors are also sepsis survivors making availability of data more pertinent than ever. A number of organizations and agencies collect, analyze, and/or report sepsis related information, in varying formats. These efforts could yield faster progress in our fight against sepsis if they were harmonized and connected with one another. During this talk, Jon Glaudemans, Executive Director of the National Sepsis Registry Initiative will discuss why all of this makes it so critical for us to develop a Data Trust, to include a patient directed and patient supplied data-driven approach to equitable sepsis prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care. 

This session was originally presented in September 2021 as part of the 2021 Sepsis Alliance Summit.

Target Audience

Nurses, Advanced Practice Providers, Physicians, Emergency Responders, Pharmacists, Medical Technologists, Respiratory Therapists, Physical/ Occupational Therapist, Social Workers, Mental Health Professionals, Students, IT Professionals, Sepsis Survivors, Advocates, and more!
