Avera eICU® CARE
Avera Health believes the absolute best ICU technology should be available to hospital patients throughout the region. Our new eICU brings the latest in telemedicine and ICU care to Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center by connecting our critical care experts to multiple ICU patients in the Avera system.
How the eICU Improves Critical Care
We have expanded our critical care resources to include an off-site team led by an intensivist. Working with our on-site hospital ICU staff, this team uses the latest networking technology to monitor and quickly react to any changes in the condition or vital-signs of our patients.
Networked Regional Healthcare
The Avera eICU® connects many of our facilities throughout the region, including:
- Avera St. Luke's
- Avera Sacred Heart
- Avera Queen of Peace
Connecting our patients and physicians across the region allows for a higher level of care.
New Improvements in eICU
Some improvements the new eICU brings to your care include:
- eICU staff can alert the on-site critical care staff of patient vital changes more quickly
- eICU technology improves physician workflow and communication with other critical care staff
- Smart Alert software evaluates patient data for important trends
- The on-site physician is still in charge of ICU patient care
Avera eICU® CARE is a quantum leap in ICU telemedicine and it's another way We're Caring for Life.
