Abstract

The paradigm has shifted in care delivery models to effect improvements in both the quality and safety of patient care. Tele-Health integration is one example. By using mobile devices and the expertise of experienced clinicians in a remote location, bedside caregivers now can receive real-time assistance for patient management. The Tele-ICU is one example of an application of a technological model that accelerates clinical problem solving and decision-making, resulting in expediting critical care delivery and ultimately enhancing outcomes.
