A Game about Sepsis 
Septris is another app showing the slow gamification of healthcare. Septris’s aim is to assist players in learning how to identify and manage sepsis. It is designed for hospital staff, but should definitely be tried by medical students. Septris is driven by interactive case scenarios which allows the players to put the medical principles into practice. Septris is currently free, however requires a fee for CME credit.
