Tele-ICU Implementation Supports the Work of Bedside Intensivists to Provide 24/7 Patient Oversight
Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced today the launch of tele-ICU services at HSHS St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, IL, the flagship hospital of Hospital Sisters Health System. The partnership with Advanced ICU Care will provide around-the-clock support of the hospital’s intensivists and bedside teams to deliver the gold standard of critical care – care exclusively overseen by an intensivist physician.
“Our goal is to provide our patients the best care possible.”
Advanced ICU Care’s team of physicians, advanced practice providers and nurses with advanced training in critical care utilize state-of-the-art software, real-time clinical data and two-way audio-visual capabilities to remotely monitor and engage in patient care around-the-clock. Advanced ICU Care’s comprehensive high-acuity program also embeds adaptive clinical workflows and robust analytics. This multi-dimensional approach to tele-ICU supports the care provided by HSHS St. John’s bedside intensivists and clinical teams and ensures consistent delivery of exceptional critical care.
“Our goal is to provide our patients the best care possible and we believe that means delivering the recommended standard of around-the-clock intensivist oversight,” said Dr. Gurpreet Mander, Chief Medical Officer at HSHS St. John’s Hospital. “Partnering with Advanced ICU Care allows us to do this by supporting our intensivists and APPs through collaboration at the bedside and with the assurance that their patients are well cared for when they are away from the hospital.”
“We are pleased to welcome HSHS St. John’s Hospital and the Hospital Sisters Health System into our growing tele-ICU network,” said Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care. “We look forward to working hand in hand with their highly skilled bedside teams and vision-focused leadership to deliver the gold standard of care to the community’s highest acuity patient population.”
