Remote monitoring of ICU patients lowers mortality rates, complications

3 percent and 36 percent.

Hospitals can't afford to be without full-time critical care, Dorman says, as complications can increase a patient's hospital bill by an average of $14,000, and an adverse drug event can add as much as $27,000. Intervening in any way to prevent complications can lower a patient's risk of an adverse event by 2 to 7 percent, he says. In this study, remote monitoring lowered the risk by 10 percent.

"There's almost nothing that helps that much," Dorman says. "It's a real cost savings in the decreased length of stay and mortality, lower hospital and professional fees and controlled complications."

The study's other authors were Peter Pronovost, M.D., Ph.D.; Mollie Jenckes, M.Sc.; Nancy Zhang, Ph.D.; Gerard Anderson, Ph.D.; and Haya Rubin, M.D., Ph.D., of Hopkins; and Brian A. Rosenfeld, M.D., and Michael J. Breslow, M.D., of Visicu Inc. Rosenfeld and Breslow were at Hopkins at the time of the study.
