Numerous peer-reviewed studies have shown that ICU morbidity, mortality, length of stay and costs are greatly reduced when proactive, direct care is led by a board-certified intensivist. However, most hospitals are unable to staff their ICUs at this level due to the expense and a shortage of specialists. InTouch Health remote presence technology solutions address these challenges by enabling virtual intensivist coverage, resulting in improved efficiencies, clinical outcomes and financial results for academic, community, rural and critical access hospitals. By allowing intensivists to integrate existing best-practice clinical protocols and workflows with a mobile robotic platform to support effective, remote proactive care in an ICU environment, InTouch Health provides a unique TeleICU model for a fraction of what other more fixed ICU monitoring solutions cost.
