Tele-ICU is the use of an off-site command center in which a critical care team (intensivists and critical care nurses) is connected with patients in distant ICUs to exchange health information through real-time audio, visual, and electronic means. eHealthGroup robotic telehealth solutions facilitate leveraging of intensivist and other specialist resources and expertise within a single facility or across a network. Increased intensivist/specialist presence whether using a proactive, reactive, or consultative only model, resulting in better clinical outcomes. Decreased Length Of Stay (LOS), Increased volume and increased CMI all result in increased revenue and decreased costs. Programs can be scaled and expanded according to clinical need and service line strategy allowing hospitals and specialists to improve high acuity health care delivery:

  • Increase ICU throughput and improve bed capacity management
  • Improve physician and staff satisfaction
  • Reduction in mortalities
  • Improve relationships within the network and capture market share
  • Provide better triage for potential transfers and keep appropriate patients close to home
  • Onboard additional service lines quickly and efficiently
