Relias Sepsis

Evidence-Based, Personalized Learning

Reducing variation in care among nurses and doctors to more effectively prevent, identify and manage cases of sepsis.

The State of Sepsis

Sepsis, often referred to as the ‘silent killer’, is a condition that occurs as a result of the body’s overwhelming and life-threatening response to infection. In severe cases, sepsis can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. As the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals and the leading cause of readmissions, over 750,000 people in the U.S. alone are diagnosed with sepsis each year.

Although the definition of and diagnostic criteria for sepsis are dynamic and have evolved over the last few decades, sepsis represents one of the most common conditions encountered by caregivers.

Timing is Everything

Recognizing symptoms quickly matters. Tissue damage, organ failure and ultimately death are all complications of sepsis if not identified and managed promptly.

Silent Symptoms

There is no single symptom of sepsis and early signs are very subtle, easy to miss, and the disease process progresses rapidly.

Better Outcomes Tomorrow

With early management of sepsis as the best way to improve patient safety, complementing provider expertise with analytics is a clear path to better outcomes.

Financial Implications

As the leading cause of death in U.S. hospitals and largest driver for readmissions, sepsis causes 200,000 deaths and costs billions in healthcare dollars per year.
