Hicuity Health, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, is expanding its relationship with Sarah Bush Lincoln with the implementation of inpatient telemetry services. Sarah Bush Lincoln has partnered with Hicuity Health for tele-ICU services since 2015. The success of this ongoing critical care collaboration influenced the decision to extend the partnership to include the new telemetry services.
Hicuity Health’s Remote Cardiac Telemetry monitoring provides hospitals with 24/7 monitoring by trained and certified telemetry technicians located in dedicated technology-enabled care centers. Hicuity’s nurse-managed technicians monitor cardiac at-risk patients throughout the hospital, identifying cardiac abnormalities, and then urgently reporting them to the bedside team. Partnering with Hicuity Health’s remote monitoring service engages trained monitoring of patient waveforms and allows bedside nurses to maintain their focus on patient care rather than focusing on computer monitors and responding to false alarms.
“As a tele-ICU partner, we have been impressed by Hicuity Health’s support and collaborative approach. The expansion of our relationship to include telemetry services is a direct result of our years of experience with Hicuity. Simply put, we wanted to ensure that we were working with a team that would be an expert partner to our clinical team,” Sandra Miller, SBL VP Patient Care Continuum, CNO, said. “The decision to expand the relationship to include remote telemetry services is a strategic decision from both an operational and clinical perspective.”
“We are pleased to extend our long-term relationship with Sarah Bush Lincoln to include telemetry services,” said Lou Silverman, Chief Executive Officer of Hicuity Health. “Its addition of Hicuity Health’s Remote Cardiac Telemetry services emphasizes the hospital’s commitment to providing its staff with the support needed to ensure high quality patient care.”
