Hicuity Health Partnership Expands Service Relationship to Include Inpatient Telemetry Monitoring
Hicuity Health's remote monitoring program involves trained data on patient waveforms, allowing bedside nurses to focus on patient care rather than computer monitors and dealing with false alarms.
Fremont, CA: Hicuity Health has been at the forefront of telemedicine innovation for over 16 years. The company is the company that delivers specialist services to high-acuity patients in high-acuity environments, serving a diverse range of patients and care venues – like health systems and post-acute care facilities – with expanding line of services that involves tele-ICU, virtual nursing, virtual sitter, remote inpatient telemetry, smart device monitoring, and shared services.
"We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with Sarah Bush Lincoln to include telemetry services," said Lou Silverman, Chief Executive Officer of Hicuity Health. "Its addition of Hicuity Health's Remote Cardiac Telemetry services emphasizes the hospital's commitment to providing its staff with the support needed to ensure high-quality patient care."
Hicuity Health, the nation's premier supplier of high-acuity telehealth services, is deepening its collaboration with Sarah Bush Lincoln by introducing inpatient telemetry services. Since 2015, Sarah Bush Lincoln has worked with Hicuity Health to provide tele-ICU services. The continuous success of this critical care collaboration inspired the decision to broaden the relationship to incorporate the additional telemetry services.
Hicuity Health's Remote Cardiac Telemetry monitoring service offers hospitals round-the-clock monitoring by experienced and accredited telemetry professionals stationed in specialized technology-enabled healthcare centers. Hicuity's nurse-managed technicians keep monitoring cardiac at-risk patients throughout the hospital, detecting cardiac irregularities and reporting them to the bedside team as soon as possible. Hicuity Health's remote monitoring program involves trained data on patient waveforms, allowing bedside nurses to focus on patient care rather than computer monitors and dealing with false alarms.
"As a tele-ICU partner, we have been impressed by Hicuity Health's support and collaborative approach. The expansion of our relationship to include telemetry services directly results from our years of experience with Hicuity. Simply put, we wanted to ensure that we were working with a team that would be an expert partner to our clinical team," Sandra Miller, SBL VP Patient Care Continuum, CNO, said. "The decision to expand the relationship to include remote telemetry services is a strategic decision from both an operational and clinical perspective."
