Data from general acute care hospitals in California suggest that patient demographics and health status appear to be the most important predictors of in-hospital mortality in patients with severe sepsis. In the analysis, mortality was shown to increase with age and was associated with:

Caucasian race.
Medicaid and private insurance.
Hospital volume.
