GE Healthcare and Sepsis Alliance Collaborate to Improve Treatment of Sepsis – Leading Cause of Death in U.S. Hospitals
Date:11/22/2019

Sepsis Alliance, the nation’s first and leading sepsis organization, and GE Healthcare, a leading provider of medical imaging, monitoring, biomanufacturing, and cell and gene therapy technologies, today announced their collaboration to improve sepsis treatment and to help save lives. As part of this relationship, GE Healthcare is sponsoring the webinar series, Can We Help ‘Solve’ Sepsis, Together, and is supporting the Sepsis Coordinator Network.

Sepsis is the body’s life-threatening response to infections that takes an estimated 270,000 lives each year in the United States. It claims more lives than opioid overdoses, breast cancer, and prostate cancer combined. Can We Help ‘Solve’ Sepsis, Together, a four-part installment of the Sepsis Alliance innovation webinar series developed and presented by GE Healthcare experts, aims to empower healthcare providers with the latest innovations and research in sepsis care to help improve outcomes for sepsis patients and to help save lives.

“Educating healthcare providers about the latest innovations in sepsis treatment is key to not only reducing sepsis mortality but to improving overall patient outcomes,” said Thomas Heymann, President and Executive Director, Sepsis Alliance. “Without committed partners like GE Healthcare, Sepsis Alliance would not be able to offer healthcare providers with our vast library of educational webinars and resources, or with platforms like the Sepsis Coordinator Network.”

In a further commitment to improving sepsis treatment, GE Healthcare became a sponsor of the Sepsis Coordinator Network (SCN), a peer-to-peer online community created by Sepsis Alliance. The SCN offers sepsis best practice resources and guidance to sepsis coordinators and all health professionals across the country. It has more than 2,000 members from 1,700 hospitals and facilities, and its members cover more than 572,000 hospital beds.

“Our ultimate goal in our collaboration with Roche Diagnostics is to empower health care providers with high-quality insights that can guide action for patients before sepsis-related decline requires heroic and expensive measures,” said Paul Mullen, general manager of GE Healthcare Acute Care. “Education about patient deterioration is a critical aspect of our work, making our involvement with Sepsis Alliance particularly meaningful and important.”
