Lou Silverman in Healthcare Business News: Telemedicine Services Impact on ICU Environment

Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care, was featured in a “Cost Containment Corner” article in Healthcare Business News. In the article, Silverman details how disruption and evolution in health care reveal opportunities for innovation and strategic partnerships. With an increasing focus on value-based care – and pressure to elevate quality while improving financial efficiency – telemedicine services are having a positive impact in the ICU where acuity and cost of care are highest.

SLou Silvermanilverman explains that because ICUs typically account for approximately 30% of hospital costs, despite representing only about10% of the beds, and with the growing expectation of 24/7 intensivist oversight, the complicated ICU environment is primed to benefit from tele-ICU services.

He further details how the intense connectivity of the tele-intensivist-led care team, via constant data streams and communication interfaces, enables proactive care and a particular focus on clinical best practices. Citing aggregated data and current tele-ICU service users, Silverman identifies how around-the-clock availability of and collaboration with the remote teams can positively impact the quality of care provided while benefitting the ICUs bottom line.
