Tele-ICU Services Provide 24×7 Patient Monitoring and Additional Layer of Bedside Care Team Support
Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine, announced a recent tele-ICU services launch with Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC), located in Salem, Ohio. Advanced ICU Care’s sophisticated technology-enabled care services will provide the hospital’s bedside teams with 24 x 7 x 365 clinical expertise supporting the delivery of the gold standard of critical care to patients.
Salem Regional Medical Center’s search for a tele-ICU partner stemmed from its goal to provide an elevated level of critical care within its community. The hospital was impressed by Advanced ICU Care’s clinical care reputation and proven patient results at nearly 100 hospitals. Its intensivist-led care teams, coupled with proprietary telemedicine technology, together ensure that the hospital’s bedside teams will be supported around the clock in order to achieve the desired patient outcomes.
“Salem Regional Medical Center had been exploring the potential of tele-ICU prior to the COVID-19 pandemic,” explained Anita Hackstedde, M.D., SRMC’s President/CEO. “When looking for a service partner, the breadth of Advanced ICU Care’s critical care experience as well as the sophistication of its technology offering was particularly attractive. When we experienced rising community demand for intensive care services during the pandemic, Advanced ICU Care worked with us to accelerate our launch date so we could maximize our ICU capacity. The organization’s ability to rapidly scale support during the COVID-19 crisis has been impressive and we look forward to a long and impactful critical care collaboration with their team moving forward.”
“Advanced ICU Care is pleased to initiate a tele-ICU partnership with Salem Regional Medical Center, arming its bedside team with remote clinical and technology resources to support the ability to deliver timely critical care to patients,” said Advanced ICU Care CEO, Lou Silverman. “Our high-acuity telemedicine service model is enabled by continuing investment in innovation and technologies that deliver care benefits to bedside teams and our mutual patients. The resulting care is proven to improve clinical outcomes while reducing costly length of stays. We are committed to building on this success with Salem Regional Medical Center and its critical care team.”
Advanced ICU Care treats more ICU patients and saves more lives than any other tele-ICU provider in the nation. Working with a talented team led by U.S. board-certified physicians, the company delivers high-acuity patient monitoring to both health systems and individual hospitals and has successfully implemented and managed more tele-ICU programs than any other organization.
