Wipro GE Healthcare's has introduced Remote Monitoring Solution, Tele-ICU, along with the Centricity High Acuity Critical Care Solution (CHA-CC), which is tailor-made to connect Intensive Care Units (ICUs) in different locations or within the same building to central sites.
The technology has so far connected 800 beds across several hospitals in India to the hub hospital where highly skilled healthcare professionals can remotely provide advanced consultation and care to their critically ill patients.
The hospitals which have deployed this solution include Apollo Hospitals-Hyderabad, Kainos Hospital-Rohtak and Apex Hospital-Jaipur. Currently, the ICU beds are connected from the states of Jharkhand, Assam, Maharashtra, Haryana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
Designed and developed in GE’s John F Welch Technology Center, Bangalore, Tele-ICU works on a hub and spoke model where it enables clinicians to provide a similar level of advanced consultation, care and monitoring to their critically ill patients without having to physically transfer them to a super-speciality hospital.
Additionally, Wipro GE Healthcare in partnership with MedIoTek (using CHA-CC and MedloTek’s wearable bands for monitoring of patient vitals) enabled 60 home beds to be connected to a central ICU of Saiman Healthcare in Delhi.
