Medanta and GE HealthCare launch Tele-ICU services in India

27 July 2023 | News

To expand access to superspeciality critical care medicine

Medanta group of hospitals, a leading healthcare service provider, has announced the launch of Tele-ICU services in India as Medanta e-ICU project, in association with GE HealthCare, a leading global medical technology and digital solutions innovator, with a vision to nurture ‘superspeciality based critical care practices’.

This association aims to transform healthcare delivery and address the existing gaps in critical care, with high level knowledge transfer via 24x7 Medanta e-ICU Command Centre, powered by cutting edge technology from GE HealthCare that equips both central and bedside medical teams.

The Command Centre was inaugurated by Chief Minister Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath. This medical-technical platform will provide a near real-time patient monitoring, even during the odd hours like midnight, enabling early patient interventions. As a result of this fusion, the decision-making ability of an ICU can bring extraordinary results in clinical outcomes.

In India, the availability of round-the-clock, well qualified on-site intensivist staff is limited and costly which can result in delays of appropriate clinical decision and may lead to increased morbidity, mortality, and financial burnout. Alternate strategies are needed to bring expertise and proactive, continuous care to critically ill patients. The Command Centre aids direct integration of hospitals systems to devices, enabling increased efficiency, greater collaboration, enhanced patient care, and a reduction in cost of care, improving the overall experience for patients and clinical teams. Medanta will support the service delivery with the help of a closed super specialised critical care medicine team at the command centre, applying globally accepted best practices.
