Emory’s eICU Platform Takes Telehealth to a New Time Zone

Emory Healthcare is testing a telehealth platform that ensures patients in ICUs at any location and any time have immediate access to a clinician at the top of his or her game.

To do this, the Atlanta-based health system is partnering with Royal Philips and Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, to create an eICU network that ensures that ICUs in the Emory network are staffed at all times by Emory doctors and nurses on normal daytime shifts.
