Critical Care

Provide consistent intensivist support

Extend the reach of your intensivists

A rapidly aging population is increasing the need for critical care services due to chronic conditions and acute complications. Intensive care units (ICUs) are challenged with providing appropriate coverage and continuity of care for a variety of patients and situations.

Intensivists play a critical role in the treatment and workflow in ICUs, yet there is a significant shortage of intensive care specialists. Despite efforts by hospitals to recruit more intensivists, there are not enough to provide high-quality care to ICU patients.¹

InTouch Health Drives Results

Providence St. Joseph Health began investigating TeleICU solutions to provide additional coverage to ICUs. A phone-only system was first implemented, however, this generated frustrations on both sides as remote clinicians felt uncomfortable advising on patients they could not see, and the bedside teams did not feel fully supported.

Recognizing the value TeleICU can provide in improving specialist access, staff satisfaction, and quality of care, Providence implemented and assessed the impact of more robust remote support via TeleICU at night.
