eICU(R) Program Activates in Alaska
Date:3/4/2009

a core value -- equal access for all patients. 'Getting the right patient the right treatment at the right time' is the mantra for critical care. This program allows us to deliver that level of care right where they are -- a significant benefit to the communities in Alaska."

Providence plans to partner with hospitals outside of its network to bring 24x7 specialist support to surrounding communities and their patients - bringing critical care close to home. "Here in Alaska, community and rural hospitals do not have the staffing capabilities to deliver advanced medical care," explained Providence CEO Al Parrish. "With the implementation of the eICU Program at Providence Alaska Medical Center, this enhanced medical service can now be provided locally to the sickest of patients. We will save additional lives with the eICU."

Frank Sample, CEO of Philips VISICU, sees this as a great stride for telemedicine. "Many telehealth initiatives today focus on improving diagnosis and treatment for chronic care conditions. With telemedicine programs such as this, medicine and remote monitoring technology converge to protect the critically ill from debilitating and life threatening complications, while providing the healthcare system with a solution that is proven to expand access, reduce cost, and improve patient outcomes."

Philips VISICU provides healthcare information technology and clinical solutions focused on transforming the delivery of critical care through its eICU Program. Through remote monitoring technology and clinical intelligence, experienced critical care resources are leveraged to provide enhanced intensivist coverage and early intervention for safer, more effective patient care. Currently more than 200 hospitals serving more than 250,000 patients annually have partnered with VISICU to implement eICU programs.
