Description

The Surgical Critical Care Initiative (SC2i) is a USU research program established in October 2013 to develop, translate, and validate biology-driven critical care. SC2i largely builds upon legacy efforts to provide care that is centered on an individual patient's biology and oriented to both long and short term outcomes.

To realize its vision, SC2i draws considerable expertise from the premier academic centers and research-focused organizations which form its core: Uniformed Services University of Health, Duke University, Emory University-Grady Memorial Hospital, the Naval Medical Research Center, the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, and Decision Q.

Facilitating tissue acquisition and data analysis for improved decision-making algorithms are SC2i's principal focuses. Once validated, it is expected these efforts will subsequently lead to the rapid integration of these data streams into clinical practice, maximizing outcomes across any discipline requiring complex medical decision-making, including surgery, critical care, emergency medicine, orthopedics, transplant, and oncology. Approaches developed by SC2i are expected to simultaneously improve the quality and reduce the cost of care in critically-ill patients, for the benefit of both military and civilian healthcare systems.
