Advanced ICU Care Launches Remote Telemetry Service with New Hospital

Advanced ICU Care, a leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced today that the company has launched telemetry monitoring services at Passavant Area Hospital, a member of Memorial Health System, in Jacksonville, IL.

We’re told that Passavant becomes the first hospital to go live with Advanced ICU Care’s telemetry service, in which certified electrocardiogram (EKG) technicians in an Advanced ICU Care center remotely monitor Passavant’s at-risk cardiac patients on a 24 x 7 x 365 basis.

Advanced ICU Care’s team of certified technicians utilizes advanced telemetry monitoring systems that enable remote patient observation to provide real-time oversight of patients who have been identified as high-risk for cardiac events.

In short, the remote telemetry technicians monitor patients’ heart functions for variances, review alerts, and when clinically appropriate, engage bedside physicians and nurses to intervene when patients require clinical attention. Identification of warning indicators and urgent situations by the telemetry technician can support earlier intervention by bedside clinicians.

“Our new telemetry partnership with Advanced ICU Care enhances our ability to provide excellent care through optimal delivery,” noted Harry Schmidt, Passavant President and CEO. “Our telemetry patients are vigilantly monitored around-the-clock, enabling our bedside nurses to focus their time on delivering the highest quality of patient care while providing the flexibility to maintain that high level of care independent of fluctuations in census.”
