Research has shown that when ICU patients are provided with a single standard of care 24/7, by a high-intensity staffed multi-disciplinary care team, in which treatment decisions are cohesively managed under the guidance of a certified intensivist, those patients experience reductions in length-of-stay (LOS) and healthcare-associated infections (HAI)1 as well as 40% decreases in ICU mortality.
Virtual ICU Surveillance offers an innovative solution to the intensivist shortage. Rather than tying intensivists to a single location, it combines near real-time clinical surveillance capabilities with state-of-the-art telemedicine technology to allow one intensivist to monitor multiple patients across multiple, geographically dispersed ICUs.
Virtual ICU Surveillance provides coverage when no intensivist is on-site. It also provides a level of redundancy to help reduce the risk of adverse events among a hospitals most vulnerable patients. Virtual ICU Surveillance also is designed to operate in concert with the health systems existing EHR.
