Make Sepsis the #2 Killer in Hospitals
Sepsis is still the #1 cause of death in hospitals, because the health-tech industry focuses on speed of detection as the answer to better sepsis outcomes– but speed alone isn’t enough. It’s speed combined with other key factors that are hiding in plain site.
By addressing the entire problem, LUMINARE’s patented solution generates revenue, reduces nurse workload, and stops unnecessary death in hospitals.
LUMINARE integrates with your existing sepsis protocol to measure performance against your own success benchmarks inside of our powerful analytics dashboard.
LUMINARE equips your CNO to optimize workflows, manage assignments and identify potential staffing problems. LUMINARE improves nursing compliance for identifying sick patients, offering greater insights through surrogate markers of good nursing behavior.
LUMINARE eliminates alert fatigue through stunning accuracy, and empowers nurses by providing clear, actionable steps to intervene in SBAR format. LUMINARE reduces unnecessary workload and subsequent nurse burnout, validates nurse intuition, and increases peace of mind with our elegantly enhanced SIRS screening checklist.
LUMINARE improves clinical documentation on SEP-1 compliance for 3 and 6 hour bundles, and enables your CDI team to catch documentation opportunities in real time, pass audits with confidence and decrease denial of claims.

No CFO gets fired for saving lives or making money.
With Luminare, you can do both.
We know hospital CFOs genuinely care about patient outcomes along with the financial health of their hospital. When your hospital improves patient outcomes in a financially sound way, everybody wins.
From a financial perspective, it’s expensive to overlook a patient who develops sepsis. A 400-bed hospital that’s billing and coding for 80-100 patients with sepsis every month is likely missing another 20 undiagnosed patients. With an average reimbursement of $10-15K, your hospital could be losing up to $300,000 per month in reimbursable expenses.
Can your hospital aﬀord to lose $3.6 million a year?
More accurate billing and coding documentation with our CDI program can result in a 10% improvement in CMI. Improving sepsis quality care can also result in a 20% decrease in ICU length of stay, in addition to decreasing other avoidable expenses in patient care from antibiotics to other expensive interventions.
Luminare helps your hospital stay vigilant and act fast. In less than a minute, Luminare processes information in the patient’s medical record combined with the nurse’s assessment in real time and provides clear, actionable steps for hospital staff to intervene.
Get your patients home faster, save valuable time and resources, and ease unnecessary strain on your hospital staff with Luminare.

LUMINARE has over 75 press and media mentions in the last two years including coverage on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, Forbes, Associated Press, Texas Monthly, Houston Business Journal, Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, and more.
Our founder, Dr. Sarma Velamuri, M.D., is board certified in internal medicine and worked as a hospitalist at a major academic medical center. He always thought that was the entirety of his career path until one day his friend’s daughter died of septic shock in his ICU. Dr. Velamuri perceived this devastating loss as a personal failure. Soon after, he mortgaged his house and started LUMINARE.
Luminare has since grown from two people in a garage to 36 team members. We’ve quadrupled our revenue in the last two years, and have over 75 press mentions in major media including Forbes, ABC, NBC, CBS, and more.
To accelerate the process of solving sepsis, Luminare has allocated $1M to the Luminare Sepsis Memorial Grant. The grant is an allocation of funds that removes perceived barriers to entry and de-risks the opportunity for qualified hospitals to pilot Luminare in situations where they either don’t have the immediate liquidity or bandwidth to implement. Qualifying organizations not only have the desire to stop sepsis before it becomes fatal, but they also understand the key to solving sepsis is increasing the speed at which it’s detected.
The grant is not for major hospital systems whose economic viability is obvious, but rather for smaller or acute care facilities—ideally those who already have a staff of sepsis-solving champions in place.
General requirements include meeting screening compliance thresholds, implementation of best practices, data sharing with Luminare, and participation in periodic focus groups, marketing surveys, and testimonials for the duration of the grant.
Apply for the grant below to see if you qualify for a 3-, 6-, or 12-month deployment of Luminare at zero financial cost to your organization.
Luminare can detect sepsis 15x faster.
NURSES LOVE LUMINARE.
LUMINARE takes nurses less time, inputs bedside data directly into the EMR, and provides clear, actionable steps for hospital staff to intervene.
As a former hospitalist, our founder knows how hard hospital nurses work. Missing sepsis is an expensive proposition for nurses whose time is already limited. It can take them up to two hours to care for a runaway case of sepsis.
In less than a minute, LUMINARE processes information in a patient’s medical record combined with the nurse’s assessment in real time and provides clear, actionable steps for hospital staff to intervene.
Nurses love LUMINARE—but don’t take our word for it. See for yourself how LUMINARE makes less work for nurses—and saves lives.
