Maryland ICU Patients Connected to Remote Critical Care Staff, Improving Quality and Safety
Date:5/14/2009

ently uses the technology in four of its ICUs.

With eCare, patients benefit from receiving timely, critical care when they need it and where they are most comfortable -- close to home. Moment-by-moment monitoring quickly detects changes in patient condition, watching trends in crucial indicators such as blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels and respiratory rates, allowing remote staff to alert and work cohesively with on-site staff to improve patient status.

eCare does not take the place of bedside staff. It provides an extra set of eyes and ears ensuring an added layer of safety and enabling a patient's care plan to prevent a medical crisis instead of responding to one. For on-site caregivers, in-room help is available at the push of a button.

Since the 2008 Maryland eCare announcement, eCare hospitals have been coordinating staff, securing data lines and working closely with the team at Christiana Care to ready their facilities for seamless inclusion of remote monitoring. Calvert is the first hospital to come online. Later this year, Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury and St. Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown will also come online. By 2011, almost 80 ICU beds will be connected through Maryland eCare.
