It’s the dawn of a new era in the healthcare industry, with critical patient care no longer restricted to the confines of a physical establishment. Thanks to successful remote-care strategies like Techindia’s E-ICU services, we’re only speeding further into a reality dominated by virtual medical service, a situation that has certainly been expedited by the global acute shortage of intensivists. That being said, what exactly do the company’s E-ICU services entail and how does it enable remote care and bridge this gap? Well, stay tuned for answers as we put Techindia’s remote monitoring ICU services under the microscope.
The healthcare sector, particularly in the United States, was already on its knees before the pandemic. Once the latter set in, resources were stretched extremely thin further plunging critical care units into crisis mode. The numbers simply don’t add up, and one NCBI study proves just as much, establishing that the shortage of intensive care specialists has hit a new low in recent years, with the problem estimated to be 10x worse today.
Hospitals have tried it all in vain to fill the void with alternatives, including:
However, many of these have outrightly fallen flat, while others have proved nothing more than mere band-aid solutions. Techindia’s E-ICU monitoring services step in to offer a more permanent fix that could carry hospitals and clinics well into a sustainable future.
Availing remote E-ICU specialists, or virtual nurses if you will, Techindia enables healthcare facilities of all sizes and financial might to access world-class intensivists who would otherwise be expensive to maintain on permanent payroll.
The ICU technology required to implement E-ICU monitoring services can be costly, and may not make financial sense for medium to small-scale facilities that are already fighting an inflating budget due to recent harsh economic times.
Besides the cost of buying new remote care equipment, the extra expenses of training staff to bring them up to speed with new technology further adds to the turn-off. With Techindia though, hospitals and clinics can access the latest technology without having to necessarily purchase these tools. This allows such establishments to leverage the in-house expertise they already have at their disposal, with technology they wouldn’t otherwise have access to, which affords the following benefits:
Overall, Techindia makes it possible for medical establishments to improve critical care quality affordably and sustainably.
Data silos are killing modern healthcare, but what exactly are they? Well, data silos occur when data in one department of a hospital is isolated from the other departments. It is caused by a variety of things, namely:
Data silos make it difficult to offer personalized care to patients, while they also get in the way of coordinated care across a health facility and its subsidiaries. Moreover, they inflate storage costs, encourage cyberattacks, and risk GPDR sanctions, among other penalties.
Techindia provides an interconnected technology, made possible by the cloud and machine learning technology, which avails important data to facilities, enabling them to determine lengths of stay, pick out medical errors and do much more to provide superior care.
In the United States, there are about 4,000,000 ICU admissions every year, with the mortality rate averaging between 8-19% of this population. Among the leading causes of this burgeoning ICU mortality rate includes:
While it’s true that some ICU fatalities cannot be avoided, there is a significant percentage that can depending on the swiftness of available care. Every second counts and time is of the essence if lives are to be saved at ICU units.
Techindia’s remote E-ICU monitoring services provide instant alerts to notify stand-by teams as and when the early red flags of clinical deterioration start to show. In turn, patients get attended to in real-time within a few minutes of any events, thus not only saving a life but also avoiding any long-term physiological damages. Additionally, Techindia’s virtual team of intensivists maintains round-the-clock availability to provide instant consultation to local care teams to ensure the implementation of the best treatment methods.
A delayed discharge refers to the difference in time between when a patient is deemed ready for discharge and when the patient is actually discharged. For most hospitals, their ICU discharge processes leave much to be desired, and you can trace this down to:
Overall, discharge delays can lead to bed-blocking which can have especially fatal consequences for a hospital’s Accident & Emergency (A&E) departments. On top of that, it can tarnish the patient experience and affect public image.
Techindia’s E-ICU monitoring services also include an HPPA-certified website that can take over patient discharge to optimize the process, as well as take away time-intensive administrative duties from critical care workers. Intensivists can, in turn, divert more time and focus into more quality-driven critical care duties instead of menial, iterative tasks. On the patient side, this enhanced discharge process improves satisfaction, bolsters credibility, and works well for hospitals’ and clinics’ word-of-mouth reputations.
What’s more, the discharge website is encrypted and secure, availing instant access to vital patient data for physicians while locking intruders and ensuring patient confidentiality.
TechIndia’s remote monitoring ICU services are fast, reliable, and diverse, enabling hospitals to offer personalized care while lowering patient monitoring costs. The best thing about these services is that they can be incorporated into healthcare facilities’ current infrastructure, thus preventing workflow disruptions and lowering cost settings.
