Tele-ICU Services Launch Extends 24x7 Technology-Enabled Acute Care to Kansas Hospital
St. Louis, MO /PRNewswire/ - Advanced ICU Care, the nation's leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine, announced a tele-ICU care launch with AdventHealth Ottawa (Ottawa, KS). The technology-enabled care services implementation is an extension of an existing partnership between the AdventHealth system and Advanced ICU Care, providing support for AdventHealth Ottawa's ICU bedside care team via 24 x 7 x 365 patient oversight.
AdventHealth has a long-standing relationship with Advanced ICU Care which provides the system with both tele-ICU care and telemetry monitoring. The new tele-ICU implementation will enable AdventHealth Ottawa to keep care within the community by reducing the need for patient transfers while also directly supporting bedside clinicians.

"AdventHealth Ottawa is pleased to implement Advanced ICU Care's tele-ICU services to further support our clinical teams on the ICU frontlines," said Stacey Steiner, VP/Chief Nursing Officer of AdventHealth Ottawa. "In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization was able to fast track our tele-ICU care services launch to give our care teams an additional proven layer of patient oversight and support.
