Sepsis Patient Data: from Silos to Solutions

Session Description: 

Listen as an expert panel addresses the opportunity to modernize the collection, curation, and use of sepsis data to improve innovation, treatment, outcomes, equity, and cost. The panel addresses questions such as: What happens to sepsis data after the patient leaves the room? What have we learned from our COVID-19 response? Are there ways to organize sepsis data across time and geography? How can organized sepsis data help in diagnosis and treatment? Is there a role for government in helping organize sepsis data?

This course was originally recorded in September 2020 as part of the 2020 Sepsis Alliance Summit.
