IT outsourcing services will include network management, server hosting, 24x7 monitoring and management, site support, help desk services, hardware and software provisioning. Advanced ICU Care, a medical service company providing critical care physicians to patients in intensive care units of community hospitals, utilizes a sophisticated eICU® solution developed by Viscu, Inc. The eICU® technology enables remote monitoring and the ability to provide intensivist services to patients in multiple hospitals on a continuous basis. Advanced ICU Care's intensivists and critical care nurses will monitor ICU patients in real-time 24 hours a day, evaluating when interventions are necessary and alerting the appropriate personnel to respond.
Studies show that this type of care model can reduce ICU mortality by 25% and save costs.
