Video: Data From 185,000 ICU Admissions Show Significant Reductions in Mortality:

cing mortality through early identification and early treatment for specific diseases, such as sepsis," said Teresa Rincon, R.N., nurse director for the Sutter Health Sierra Region eICU Center. "Studies suggest that sepsis kills over 500 people every day in the United States alone. Anyone who has an infection can develop this disease. Our eICU team provides an extra set of eyes on patients and additional expert guidance for treatment in a place where patients' lives depend on how fast we can provide appropriate care."

UMass Memorial Health Care

UMass Memorial Health Care (http://www.umassmemorial.org/MedicalCenterIP.cfm?id=3027), consisting of UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, Mass., and four community hospitals, has seen positive results from the eICU Center it established to cover its 112 ICU beds at three locations.

"To sustain the excellent care we already deliver in the ICU, hospitals nationwide are being encouraged to identify solutions to prepare for an aging population and ongoing shortage of intensivists," said UMass Memorial Health System Medical Director Craig Lilly, M.D. "It's not simply putting good providers at bedside or adding a camera, microphone and software to an ICU room; it's the combination of people and technology demonstrated by the striking success of the eICU program at UMass," he added. "We have seen reductions in mortality, length of stay and cost per case wherever we have implemented the eICU model. It's the future of critical care medicine, and it can only expand from here."

Avera Health

Recent research by Avera Health (http://www.averamckennan.org/amck/services/eicu/EICU.aspx), a rural health system based in Sioux Falls, S.D., that operates 233 facilities in five states, found that mortality dropped 29 percent and patient l
