This partnership will provide patients around-the-clock monitoring from the MRHS ICU team and
  eICU CARE’s physicians specialized in ICU care and seasoned critical care nurses, to reduce rates of complication, length of stay and mortality. This concerted approach in ICU care provides the multidisciplinary critical care team within the hospital access to more assistance, support and provides more options to care for the patients in the community.

With this technology, Madison Regional Health has partnered with eICU Care to view real-time patient information such as cardiac monitors, lab results and medications, as well as care notes via electronic medical record interface. This technology integration provides real-time information to form a sophisticated predictive analysis, giving the care team the ability to continually monitor patients’ health information. This information helps the entire team assist in the care of critical patients in Madison Regional Health System’s ICU.

“Partnering with eICU CARE allows us greater latitude in keeping patients in Madison, close to their homes and families,” said Tammy Miller, CEO. “This technology helps us create a comprehensive critical care team with our experienced physicians and nurses and eICU CARE’s specialists.”

Madison Regional Health has two critical care rooms equipped with the eICU CARE system featuring high-definition video that assists in the collaboration of the MRHS ICU team and the eICU CARE team. This advanced video technology allows specialty critical care clinicians to see close-up views of patient indicators like pupil size, skin color and settings on patient-support devices. MRHS also utilizes other Avera eCARE telemedicine networks including Avera eConsult, eEmergency and ePharmacy to assist in providing specialized care to patients at Madison Regional Health System.
