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
Our Critical Care Solution extends intensivist coverage to remotely manage and triage patients, helping you dramatically improve clinical outcomes and patient care while reducing costs. Better manage and treat patients, support your ICU staff, and reduce time to intervention.
Built on our cloud-based network with simplicity at its core, Solo creates a seamless experience across web, mobile, or desktop. As the backbone of healthcare’s first fully integrated platform, Solo enables software and devices to bring the ease and familiarity of face-to-face care to your patients.
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.
