Hospitalizations for Severe Infections Account for $212 Billion in Annual Spending or 7% of Total Healthcare Expenditure

In 2014, US healthcare spending exceeded $3.0 trillion with nearly 1/3 spent on hospitalizations. Informed by real-world data from an Electronic Health Record (EHR) database of clinical and administrative records spanning 273 million encounters for 60 million patients in 600+ hospitals across the US, this report estimates 30% of all hospital discharges involve treatment of infectious organisms.

Sepsis is responsible for an estimated 12% of all hospital stays. At an average cost of $15,500 per occurrence, we estimate that hospitalizations for severe infections account for $212 billion in annual spending or 7% of total healthcare expenditure. In this report, we conduct an in-depth analysis of sepsis patient characteristics, costs, and laboratory testing.

Gram-positive bacteria are the likely causative agents of most sepsis infections. From 2010-2015, drug resistant organisms caused an astonishing 40% of bacterial sepsis infections. Hospital-Treated Sepsis Part 1: Diagnosis is part one of a two-part series on hospital-treated sepsis.

This report provides quantitative, objective data focused on the diagnosis of sepsis requiring hospitalization. The data provides real-world patient encounters and reflects real physician diagnostic decisions and encounter characteristics (e.g. admissions and lab testing) in key areas, such as antibiotic resistant pathogens.
