Ochsner Health System will Offer First eICU Program in Louisiana
Date:6/29/2011

NEW ORLEANS, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ochsner Health System has signed an agreement with Philips VISICU to implement its state-of-the-art eICU Program to enhance critical care -- a program that has been proven to reduce complications, shorten hospital length of stay and save lives. As the only healthcare provider in Louisiana with the eICU Program, Ochsner will serve as a statewide resource to community and rural hospitals which can benefit from expanded critical care staffing and technology.

Studies have shown improved outcomes and decreased lengths of stay for patients in ICUs managed by intensivists (physicians trained as specialists in critical care). However, as there is a severe shortage of these specialized doctors in the U.S., many hospitals are unable to have critical care physicians on-site 24 hours a day. The eICU Program solves this problem.

The eICU Program will connect Ochsner's bedside care teams with off-site critical care physicians and nurses using advanced software and continuous remote monitoring technology from Philips VISICU. The software detects and advises clinicians of important trends and changes in a patient's condition, enabling more proactive care with fewer complications.  Use of the 2-way audio-video capability also allows the off-site intensivist to interact and collaborate with the bedside medical team and the patient's family to make important, time-sensitive patient care decisions.  

"The eICU Program will offer increased peace of mind to Ochsner patients and families as it will provide additional oversight from trained critical care specialists looking after patients in our ICUs at all times," said Dr. David Taylor, Section Head, Critical Care Medicine, Ochsner Medical Center. "In addition, medical literature supports that the Philips eICU Program offers significant benefit in terms of quality, safety and financial p
