How It Works
The MUSC and Advanced ICU Care intensivist physicians operate from a centralized location where they constantly monitor patient data, including vital signs, medications, lab results and trends in patients’ clinical status. Because the data management tools identify problems before they become urgent, the intensivist team can work alongside hospital staff to address situations immediately, before complications develop.
The team also uses two-way video and audio to enable face-to-face consultations between them and the bedside physicians and nurses day or night. Unique analytics and collaborative structured process continually measure the ICU’s performance, ensuring best practices are consistently achieved for optimal patient care, fewer complications and better patient safety.
