Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) July 26, 2016
Damian Mingle, the chief data scientist for WPC Healthcare, was named a finalist for the 2016 Sepsis Heroes Awards, sponsored by the Sepsis Alliance. Mingle has developed a predictive analytics solution to help hospitals identify sepsis risk before clinical indicators suggest a patient is sick.
This year’s Sepsis Hero, Tom Ahrens, PhD, RN, is a research scientist at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. He is being honored for his work to raise sepsis awareness through education and technology applications.
“We are honored to have Damian named as a Sepsis Heroes finalist, and we congratulate Dr. Ahrens on his achievement,” says Ray Guzman, chief executive officer of WPC Healthcare. “Sepsis accounts for five percent of all acute healthcare spending, but the strategy to address sepsis has changed little since 1974. Whether it’s the analytics solution Damian has developed, or Tom’s clinical education sites for healthcare professionals, sepsis demands an ‘all hands on deck’ approach to help give hours back to clinical staff and save lives.”
The full list of Sepsis Heroes will be announced at the Fifth Annual Sepsis Heroes Gala on Sept. 15 in New York. The Sepsis Alliance holds the event during Sepsis Awareness Month to honor people and organizations that have made a significant contribution to sepsis awareness and education among both the general public and healthcare professionals.
