Enable Meaningful Improvements
In the intensive care unit, every second counts. So does every piece of data.
Hospital ICUs are tasked with taking care of the most critically ill patients. That means that to improve patient care, providers must have access to vital information at their fingertips, and the departments themselves must be running at an optimal level.
However, managing ICUs also has its own unique set of challenges due to the acuity of patients, the types of resources needed (such as ventilators), and higher per-patient levels of staffing and necessary specializations.
