Apollo Hospitals has launched the Apollo Centre of Excellence in Critical Care (ACECC). The ACECC will harness digital technology to create an integrated network of eICUs providing world-class critical care not just across the Apollo Hospitals network but also in partnership with non-Apollo units in India and abroad.
The ACECC will enable wider and timely access to critical care and help in implementing a standardised scope of management and treatment in emergencies and critical medical situations.
The ACECC will comprise digital technology-enabled Critical Care Units (CCUs) having standard protocols and operating procedures (SOPs) supported by smart solutions.
This will enable expansion of the critical care network through e-ICUs using tele-health and Apollo Connect. The ACECC will also focus on evidence-based protocols, training, and capacity building of critical care specialists.
Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals Group, said, "The ACECC will be based on a network of hub-and-spokes units between Apollo and non-Apollo providers, both public and private, to ensure that every citizen has access to the best of critical care when needed.”
