- Tele-ICUs are command centers staffed with remote intensivists and critical care nurses who deliver information and aid to frontline clinicians via audiovisual and/or telecommunication systems.
- A centralized command center helps health care organizations better manage their resources to improve patient outcomes and reduce physician burnout.
- Tele-ICUs can be expensive to install, but they can help reduce costs downstream by reducing complications, supporting patients at local hospitals, and augmenting staff without having to recruit more full-time specialists.
