Early Infection Detection Improves Patient Outcomes

  • Allows for timely initiation of appropriate treatment
  • Reduces the risk of complications, hospitalizations, or long-term health consequences associated with untreated or inadequately treated infections
  • Can result in cost savings for both patients and healthcare systems

Earlier Detection of Infection is Critical for These Patients:

  • 60% of cancer deaths are related to infection ¹
  • 16 million Americans have cancer, the second leading cause of death in the U.S. ²
  • 57.7% (9.8 million out of 17 million) of new cancer cases required chemotherapy in 2018 ³
  • The 30-day readmission rate for cancer patients is up to 27% ⁴
Post Operation
  • Fevers that persist 72 hours or more post-operation can be life threatening ¹
  • The incidence of postoperative fever is anywhere between 14% and 91% ²
  • Of 1032 surgical procedures, 23.7% of patients experiences an early postoperative fever and 9.7% underwent documented fever evaluation ³
  • In 2018, it was estimated that 3,750,000 postoperative complications occurred in the U.S ⁴

BMC Surgery

  • #1 cause of hospital readmissions and death ¹
  • 1 out of 3 hospital deaths are due to sepsis ²
  • 87% of sepsis patients develop symptoms before going to the hospital ³
  • Sepsis is the #1 cost to hospitals ($60B in annually) ⁴
  • Fevers account for 9 million pediatric emergency department visits ¹
  • 75,000 children develop sepsis each year in the U.S., with fever being the leading symptom ²
  • Only 37% of U.S. hospitals offer pediatric services, down from 42% about ten years ago ³
  • Over 42 million children are enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which is more than half of the children in the U.S. ⁴
Long-Term Care
  • There are an estimated 1.29 million residents living in nursing home ¹
  • Elderly people have a higher risk of acquiring an infection and of experiencing a more severe disease course following infection than other age groups have ²
  • From 2013 to 2017, 82% of all inspected nursing homes had an infection prevention and control (IPC) deficiency. ³
  • It is estimated that 1 to 3 million serious infections occur every year in nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities. ⁴
