Sepsis is one of the significant causes of morbidity and mortality. The burden caused by sepsis has continued to increase in recent years in the Korea, highlighting the urgent need for the implementation of strategies to improve sepsis treatment outcomes. We therefore designed a web-based sepsis registry system ("Korean Registry for Improving Sepsis Survival" [KISS]) protocol to be used in hospitals in the Korea for evaluation of the epidemiology and clinical characteristics of patients with sepsis, via an analysis of outcome predictors. The inclusion criteria of this registry are as follows: adult patients ≥18 years admitted to the participating hospitals who are diagnosed with sepsis or septic shock. Demographic and clinical information data of the patients will be collected from hospital medical records and will be recorded in a case report form, which will be entered into a web-based data management system. The analysis of the collected data will be performed as follows: (1) epidemiological and clinical characteristics of sepsis and septic shock, (2) application of sepsis bundles and antibiotic stewardship, and (3) audit and feedback. In conclusion, we aim to build the comprehensive web-based sepsis registry in the Korea through a nation-wide network of participating hospitals. Information collected and analyzed through the KISS can be used for further improvements in the clinical management of sepsis. Furthermore, the KISS will facilitate research leading to the formulation of public health policies regarding sepsis bundle and antibiotic stewardship strategies in the Korea.
