The pandemic has literally shown us how lack of facilities and qualified medical professionals at the most crucial of moments can deeply impact your health. This was more evident in the rural sectors where time was absolutely crucial. Even Intensive Care units at hospitals were found short of experienced doctors leading to unforeseen outcomes.
This is when the Tele ICU System came into prominence and changed the complexion of critical care completely through Tele ICU Services. This point can be proved beyond doubt by looking at the emergence and acceptance of Tele ICU Companies all over India.
What is Tele-ICU?
It needs no mention that emergency cases need immediate attention. More so in rural sectors where lack of facilities can prove very costly. This is where Technology has made a huge difference by bringing in Tele-ICU Care.
The implementation of Telemedicine ICU requires intense planning and execution to achieve the best results. With an efficient team of world class doctors and surgeons in its network, Apollo TeleHealth has been able to bring in a major turnaround by extending protocol driven, best Tele ICU care to rural sectors.
How Does Tele-ICU Work?
The attractive feature of Tele ICU is that it bridges the gap between excellence and location perfectly as far as rural sectors are concerned. This technology enables remote care centres to extend immediate attention to the patient bedside, irrespective of wherever the hospital is located and monitor patients in the ICU.
Experts answer the question on how to manage Critical Patients from a remote location successfully.
Telemedicine ICU has been a game changer as far as TeleHealth services are concerned.
Post Pandemic, there is an increase in demand for critical care & full-time bedside care that is made accessible by Tele-ICU.
- Facility for Video Conferencing:
It facilitates communication between off-site clinicians and bedside staff to provide Real Time Patient Care.
- Seamless Transfer of Patient Health Status through EMR (Electronic Medical Records):
Provides critical update to offsite team through teleconsultation on patient’s instability or any abnormality in lab results for remediation and timely intervention. The EMR also includes patient vital reading and ventilator reading.
- Multiple Expert Consultation:
The quantum of emergency might need not one expert opinion but multiple opinions from experts positioned at different locations. Tele-ICU engages the number of experts at the same time to have a collective discussion and seek opinions.
- Chat Directly if Required With Patient/patient Family:
To seek the necessary consents for major treatment plans, experts can chat directly with the patient/patient family and enlighten them of their health status, straight in the ICU itself.
- Patient Health Alerts for Bed Side Staffs:
ICU support medical team can now receive health status as it prevails and doctors’ recommendations with respect to a patient’s treatment progress.
