Advanced ICU Care Expands into Michigan with Launch at Memorial Healthcare

Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine, announced the launch of tele-ICU services at Memorial Healthcare in Owosso, Michigan. This partnership is the first for Advanced ICU Care in the state and represents the company’s expansion into a third new state with service thus far in 2017.

With launch of tele-ICU care at Memorial Healthcare, the Advanced ICU Care team of board certified intensivists and highly trained critical care nurses provide round-the-clock monitoring of patients in the hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU), utilizing a secure flow of patient data from various hospital systems and monitoring technologies. From its eight care centers spread across six time zones, the Advance ICU Care team work together with the hospital’s clinical staff to deliver the gold standard of 24 x 7 critical care to patients. Two-way audio and video access in each patient’s room enables face-to-face consultation between the Advanced ICU Care team and the patient, the patient’s family, and the Memorial Healthcare team at the bedside. This constant monitoring and collaborative contact across care teams ensures that clinical expertise is always available.

Memorial Healthcare has received regional and national recognition for its use of technology to help manage patient care, patient safety, and service quality. For the last decade, the hospital has been recognized numerous times as one of the nation’s “Most Wired” hospitals by Hospitals & Health Networks magazine.

“We are committed to delivering high quality medical care and achieving the best clinical outcomes possible for the many patients in our community,” said Brian L. Long, FACHE, President/CEO Memorial Healthcare. “By leveraging sophisticated technology and clinical expertise, our tele-ICU partnership with Advanced ICU Care enables us to provide the highest level of constant care and service to our most critically ill patients.”

“Memorial Healthcare has been a model partner during the implementation process,” said Dr. Ram Srinivasan, Advanced ICU Care’s Medical Director for the partnership. “Our physicians and nurses are excited to collaborate with the hospital’s highly skilled team to offer the best in critical care services to their patients, improve clinical outcomes, and enhance the patient experience.”
