Illinois, Carle and OSF HealthCare attack overwhelming infection using engineering-based medicine

The Resilience Engineering in Sepsis Care program will create new tools in point-of-care diagnostics, precision medicine, data analytics, and medical simulation.

Researchers from throughout central Illinois are building the Resilience Engineering in Sepsis Care initiative. This “sepsis think tank” will work to improve care for people worldwide in critical care settings. The partnership will focus on new engineering-based diagnostic and treatment techniques. It includes the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and its Health Care Engineering Systems Center, Urbana-based Carle Health System, Peoria-based OSF HealthCare via Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center and the UI College of Medicine in Peoria.
