EICU - enhanced ICU

While nothing can replace your own doctor, you'll feel safe knowing your care in a Presence Health intensive care unit is monitored around the clock - even when your physician can't be there. The Presence eICU Connection represents a significant investment in clinical quality and patient care. It's a revolutionary service that utilizes enhanced computer software and physiology monitoring technologies to get immediate critical care physician and nurse input about any change in a patient's condition.

 Watch our video of Mr. Checca, who was treated for Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, in our eICU and Neuro Rehabilitation programs.

How does it work?
Often times, emergency situations arise in ICUs because patient conditions can change rapidly and with little warning.  eICU technology adds to current bedside care by providing continuous monitoring of each adult ICU patient, allowing for more proactive plans of care.  Members of the eICU care team - including experienced critical care physicians (intensivists), critical care nurses, and data assistants - monitor all adult ICU patients via a remote site down the block from the Medical Center.   If a patient's condition worsens or changes unexpectedly, the intensivist knows it immediately and can view the patient via remote video and quickly collaborate with the local care team. The eICU doesn't replace any critical care staff. Instead, it is an added layer of security for patients and their families. It offers the expertise of a physician who specializes in intensive care at the very moment trouble arises. And the service costs nothing more to the patient. All that is added is peace of mind.

Research has shown that eICUs such as Presence Health's improve patient care by reducing complications, shortening length of stay in the ICU and saving lives. Presence Health's eICU is the only 24/7 program in the nation.
