Adult patients who survive to hospital discharge following a critical care unit admission for sepsis are referred to as sepsis survivors.
The Sepsis SurvIvor Prognosis score is a parsimonious prognostic score that quantifies the risk of rehospitalisation or death in the first year following hospital discharge in sepsis survivors.
The SSIP score was derived from nearly 100,000 critical care admissions with Sepsis-3 defined sepsis (including septic shock) to the intensive care units in England. Internal validation was performed with bootstrapping and narrow external validation was performed.

This score has been reviewed and endorsed by the Intensive Care Society.
