Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (Lebanon, N.H.) has agreed to implement Royal Philips’ (NYSE: PHG) eICU program technology. The program aims to help reduce mortality, length of stay, and ventilation days while providing care to patients wherever they are located.
Philips’ eICU is a tele-ICU program that will link specialists at the health system’s flagship hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) in Lebanon, N.H., with the patient’s local hospital. Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s program will start with medical, surgical, and neurology intensive care units at DHMC, along with the intensive care unit at Cheshire Medical Center. The program’s tele-ICU hub will also be located at DHMC, where it will leverage Philips’ IntelliSpace eCareManager, the program’s source-agnostic software, providing clinicians with a single integrated view of patient data.
