Turning back the clock on sepsis: Defining the epidemiology and opportunities of pre-sepsisWe intend to determine the epidemiology of pre-sepsis, including ambulatory and prehospital care settings, to identify modifiable care delays, opportunities for primary sepsis prevention, and to improve early sepsis care for vulnerable populations. The objectives include determining the epidemiology of pre-sepsis care across ambulatory and prehospital settings using linked EHR data; measuring delays in pre-sepsis care; and understanding the patient-level variation in pre-sepsis care and delays in vulnerable populations. The project is a collaboration between KPNC and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
