Remote monitoring in ICU is improving the outcomes of high-risk patients. A three-way partnership is bringing round-the-clock eICU care to patients at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, delivered by critical care physicians based in Sydney, Australia. The pilot program aims to improve the outcomes of high-risk patients in greatest need of constant observation.

Emory Healthcare critical care physicians and nurses based onsite at Macquarie University’s MQ Health in Sydney will use Philips’ remote intensive care unit (eICU) technology to provide monitoring. Combining daytime critical care coverage in Atlanta with night-time coverage from Sydney provides focused, 24-hour-a-day management of ICU patients by critical care specialists, potentially decreasing the risk of complications, shortening patients’ length of stay and saving lives.Are you a critial care Physician?
