Clinical transformation in the ICU: Saving lives and reducing costs¹,²

The eICU program is a transformational critical care telehealth program that combines A/V technology, predictive analytics, data visualization and advanced reporting capabilities with Philips’ expertise and over 15 years of proven success. The eICU program delivers need-to-know information to caregivers, empowering them to care for the patients who need it most in the moments that matter most. It is a supplement—not a replacement—to the bedside team, offering support to increasingly scarce clinical resources, while reducing mortality, lengths of stay and cost of care. 

Program features and services

 

The eICU program can help reform your organization's clinical model with centralized, remote surveillance by skilled professionals; proprietary algorithms and clinical decision support, enabling proactive care delivery.

Outreach program

eICU Outreach Program: Outsourced telehealth for smaller health systems and hospitals  

Philips modular approach to enterprise telehealth enables health systems to transition to a telehealth care delivery model and scale their programs using an implementation plan and pace that works for their specific needs.

For lower-capacity health systems and hospitals (those with fewer than 50 ICU beds), it may not be possible to implement a complete enterprise telehealth program in-house. Philips recognizes this and facilitates access to an extensive range of telehealth capabilities by connecting you with an eICU program provider through our eICU Outreach Program. By partnering with an existing Philips eICU program, organizations can have their critical care beds monitored and realize the clinical benefits of an eICU program with minimal investment.

Real-world results

  • In a 5-year study that examined the impact the tele-ICU on 188,990 critical care patients across 56 ICUs, 32 hospitals and 19 health systems, length of stay and mortality were both reduced.¹

 

  • In another study, tele-ICU reduced costs from ICU-related malpractice claims by 90% (from $6M to $500.000).²

 

  • In one year, following the introduction of a tele-ICU program, a large health system saved 2.000 lives compared to what APACHE predicted and reduced the ICU length of stay by 30.986 days, resultingin a conservative savings estimate of $2.700 per ICU days reduced.³

Hospital outcomes

Analytics which drive evidence-based best practice

Philips eICU Research Institute (eRI) was established by Philips as a platform to advance the knowledge of critical care. The ERI database is a repository of anonymous data donated by member institutions and is instrumental in product development as well as a key enabler for critical research in the intensive care field.
