I don't know of any source for reimbursement based on the sepsis core measures 
compliance. It isn't tied to value based purchasing yet.

Subject: [Sepsis Groups] Core Measures for Sepsis

Does anyone know where I can find the details for Core Measure for Sepsis? Not 
what they are-but the threshold for payment? Is it just SEP-1 or is each 
element measured for compliance & payment?  What percentage is required?   I 
thought it might be in the 5.3 version-but cannot find the specifics for 
reimbursement.  Any information you can share would be appreciated.  Our 
compliance rate is just over 50% & am planning on next steps to improve our 
numbers.  Knowing the financial impact will help gain support.  Thank you-
