Evaluation of Incident 7-Day Infection and Sepsis Hospitalizations in an Integrated Health System

Annals of the American Thoracic Society
Year of publication
Prehospital opportunities to predict infection and sepsis hospitalization may exist, but little is known about their incidence following common healthcare encounters. Objectives: To evaluate the incidence and timing of infection and sepsis hospitalization within 7 days of living hospital discharge, emergency department discharge, and ambulatory visit settings. Methods: In each setting, we identified patients in clinical strata based on the presence of infection and severity of illness. We estimated number needed to evaluate values with hypothetical predictive model operating characteristics. Conclusions: Incident 7-day infection and sepsis hospitalizations following encounters in routine healthcare settings were surprisingly common and may be amenable to clinical predictive models.
