The Digital Sepsis Algorithm Project is designed to test the sensitivity and specificity of a sepsis algorithm developed by the Westmead Hospital in New South Wales using data in the ieMR to predict the onset of sepsis. The algorithm uses both rigid data sources such as pathology data and vital signs, as well as free text contained within the record. As a time-sensitive medical emergency, faster identification and management of sepsis leads to better patient outcomes.
