UMMC Telehealth offers eICU, an advanced monitoring system that connects UMMC critical care providers with
ICU patients in other locations. eICU uses sophisticated audio/visual, real-time monitoring to continually observe
and analyze a patient’s condition.
Our eICU specialists monitor critically ill patients remotely, 24/7. Using advanced technology, we watch vital signs, observe data trends, and alert bedside caregivers to changes in a patient’s condition. We also provide decision support and assistance for the bedside care team.
For patients with complex medical challenges, eICU acts as an additional safety measure, helping ensure quality care and lowering patient risk during their time in the ICU. This level of support can result in fewer complications, improved outcomes, and shorter stays.
