The terms “tele ICU,” “virtual ICU,” “remote ICU,” and “eICU” all refer to the same care concept; a centralized or remotely based critical care team (intensivists and critical care nurses) is networked with a bedside ICU team and patient via state-of-the-art audiovisual communication and computer systems. With on-demand intensivist expertise, early ICU provider intervention, and remote monitoring, TCC can Improve patient clinical outcomes, standardize the quality of care, reduce interfacility transfer, accommodate additional support during surges in patient volume, and ensure consistent service for critically ill patients. As the volume of critical ICU patients increases across Kaiser Permanente, TCC will enable proactive and on-demand care delivery at patient’s bedsides, to provide high-quality, equitable, affordable healthcare and improve the overall care experience.
