e-ICU Center, Worcester, Massachusetts

UMass TeleICU Center 

 

Transforming Health Care Through Technology Steering Committee members visited the UMass Memorial Medical Center e-ICU  center in Worcester, Massachusetts on May 6, 2011. The e-ICU system in place at the UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester
provides remote monitoring of the most ill hospital patients from a command center staffed around the clock by intensive care specialists. Attendees observed the operation of the Worcester command center and heard from the physicians and administrators
responsible for the successful tele-ICU system.  The UMass tele-ICU system is based on Philips’ Visicu eICU technology.
