University of Pennsylvania Health System launches life-saving eICU technology

(Philadelphia, PA) The University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) will be the first health system in the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware) to go live with eICU technology on November 15th. The Health System's Penn E-lert will permit remote "live" coverage of Intensive Care Units (ICUs) by practicing, critical-care physicians intensivists via a comprehensive telemedicine system that includes early-warning software, order entry, clinical decision support, electronic documentation, and remote physiologic monitoring. Penn E-lert will be on-line first in the ICUs in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH). UPHS is offering an Open House for media outlets to preview Penn E-lert on November 12th from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM at 3440 Market Street, Suite 304. Please call Ed Federico for more details and to register.

"This new initiative brings UPHS to the forefront of cutting-edge technology focused on quality and patient care," says C. William Hanson, MD, Medical Director of the Penn E-lert program. "HUP and Pennsylvania Hospitals will set the mark on how to bring ICU care into the future, while at the same time, enhancing patient care." The Penn E-lert system is expected to cover all adult ICU beds in the health system, including those at Presbyterian Medical Center, within 24 months.

Penn E-lert features real-time data, audio, and video monitoring of ICU patients by UPHS intensivists and critical-care nurses, all from one central command center every day, seven days a week, 365 days per year. The command center located at 3440 Market Street, Suite 304 is meant to supplement the on-site care provided in the ICUs by critical-care doctors and nurses, especially during off hours, such as nights and weekends. The eICU technology is a patented product of VISICU, Inc., located in Baltimore, Maryland.

Penn E-lert will function like an air-traffic control center, providi
