New York State Department of Health's Sepsis Advisory Committee
The DOH has been receptive to feedback they received on the number of data elements to be collected for cases of severe sepsis and septic shock and is now working to determine which of the variables may be obtained through administrative data sources. DOH is also reviewing each data element, particularly those related to the risk-adjustment calculation for sepsis-related mortality to determine whether any can be removed.
