Sepsis (sometimes called septicaemia) is a major cause of death in our hospital system. The sad fact is that many cases of sepsis are not picked up early enough to prevent the loss of life and the expense of admissions to intensive care. Some of you may have learned about a Sepsis Screening and Intervention Tool built by Accent on Integration which was featured on Dr Bill Crounse's HealthBlog in April.

Accent on Integration are looking for Microsoft Partners in Australia to go to market with. If you are interested in the technology they have developed, please let me know (ddembo@microsoft.com). There is a great video on Dr Crounse's HealthBlog which is worth watching if you have not seen it already.
