In situations like this, where Healthcare is using technology and expertise to really affect peoples lives and add meaning, that Philips have really hit the nail, as it were, on the head.
Philips' eICU technology allows for a more connected experience which gives patients around the world access to the right medical care for their needs. Its not just about that though, nursing and doctor shortages might be a thing of the past.
I really love when technology is not just for entertainment, but for the betterment of mankind too. Its easy to forget about these innovations, and just assume that when you go to the hospital, you get the best care in the hospital... You could now have access to the best care in the country or even the world.
Critical care units such as ICUs are high-tech units to care for patients with severe and potentially life threatening conditions that require constant and close monitoring. Philips’ eICU program is a comprehensive program that enables health care professionals from a centralized eICU center to provide around-the-clock care for critically ill patients. A study that compared patients receiving usual ICU care with patients who received their ICU care from a hospital that utilized the eICU program, showed that the latter were 26% more likely to survive the ICU and discharged from the ICU 20% faster
