GE Sponsored Live Webinar: Can We Help 'Solve' Sepsis Together? The Economics of Sepsis

October 16, 2019

There is no way to adequately assess or quantify the personal suffering and tragedy of sepsis. But healthcare institutions do strive to be effective and efficient – for the very reason of continuous improvement. This webinar takes a different look at sepsis – how institutions may more practically assess economic costs for the purpose of effective care.

Economic researcher David Kulick, MPH and Sepsis Alliance, invite you to this upcoming live episode of the “Can We Help ‘Solve’ Sepsis Together?” webinar series, The Economics of Sepsis.

David will use his recent analysis of US hospital costs to provide the audience a different perspective on sepsis at their institution. An economic view of the syndrome that is not often quantified at the institutional level. This discussion will help answer the question, “how can institutions begin to practically assess economic costs for the purpose of effective care?”

David Kulick’s research and insights will cover:

  • Why it is often difficult to fully account for the economic cost of sepsis and other disease states.
  • Examine the significant cost savings opportunity through sepsis avoidance.
  • Provide a stronger case for change.

Sepsis Alliance gratefully acknowledges the support provided by GE Healthcare for this webinar.
