Although sepsis economic impact is difficult to quantify, an epidemiological study1 estimated an average cost of ₤25.000/case with an annual population-based incidence between 40-455 per 100.000.

Led by INCLIVA, this pilot aims to improve outcomes and thereby reduce overall cost of sepsis by using big data to identify and remove bottlenecks in time-critical, hyper-acute stages of the workflow. Early identification and appropriate management in the initial hours after the event are associated with lower morbidity and mortality as well as a reduction in healthcare costs.
