Founded by Sepsis Alliance and governed by its stakeholders, the National Sepsis Registry Initiative (NSRI) is an independent, consensus-driven, multi-stakeholder initiative to create a National Sepsis Registry.
Each year, sepsis kills more than 270,000 people in the United States. For hospitalized patients with sepsis, more than one in five either die in the hospital or are discharged to hospice care. Another 1.4 million Americans survive sepsis each year, and many face months and years of difficult recovery. Sepsis also has a disproportionate impact on people and communities of color.
We can do better.
But we can’t make progress until we know the key symptoms and signs of who gets sepsis, and which treatments are the most effective, and how to do a better job helping survivors.
By building on current state and local efforts, and linking existing but unconnected data sources and repositories, a National Sepsis Registry will provide patients, doctors and researchers the critical information needed to improve sepsis diagnosis, treatment, innovation, and equity.
