TeleICU – Remote Monitoring of ICU’s - InteleICU

Traditionally many ICUs do not have 24 X 7 coverage for their patients. It is well documented that presence of an Intensivist 24 X 7 improves outcomes in the ICU. Unfortunately there is a shortage of trained Intensivists, which makes it difficult to ensure the desired round the clock coverage. InteleICU™ offers a practical solution to this dilemma. InteleICU™ is not an off-the-shelf solution especially given that the problems in handling Critical Care are unique to the circumstances of each hospital. InteleICU™ offers feasible and customized engagement models to suit the needs of each hospital. InteleICU™ looks to provide a holistic tailor made solution.
