The cost of sepsis is high: Mortality from sepsis increases 8% for every hour that treatment is delayed.1 Every year in the U.S. at least 250,0002 die from sepsis, and hospitalization for sepsis costs more than $27 billion.3
As many as 80% of sepsis deaths could be prevented with rapid diagnosis and treatment.1 Quickly diagnosing and treating sepsis is critical for your patients and your organization.
