ST. LOUIS, March 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced ICU Care, the nation's leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, today announced the opening of its fifth dedicated care operations center. The new center in Honolulu joins existing care centers in New York City, St. Louis, Houston, Charleston (South Carolina), and Irvine (California). These operations centers house intensivist-led care teams that include advanced practitioners and nurses, who are connected in real-time to more than 65 client hospitals across 22 states, providing continuous care to more than 55,000 critically ill patients each year.
Advanced ICU Care is the only U.S. tele-ICU provider to leverage a multi-hub operations model, using proprietary technology to enable remote patient care regardless of the care team members' locations. This capability enables Advanced ICU Care to provide service redundancy and attract leading critical care clinicians to provide 24-hour, 365-days-a-year tele-ICU care to its client hospitals.
"Improving clinical outcomes and saving lives are the primary goals of our company," said Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care. "Our new Honolulu operations center enables our continued access to established and qualified intensivists, as well as additional critical care trained clinical staff, interested in joining our mission to provide outstanding care to patients and the best service to our hospital partners."
Advanced ICU Care's tele-ICU service results in enhanced clinical and operational outcomes. In 2015, the company collaborated with its client partners to reduce the ICU mortality rate among patients by 34%, saving almost 1,500 lives relative to projections. The Advanced ICU Care model also reduced the average stay of an ICU patient by 1 full day, reduced the impact of sepsis, and improved compliance with best-in-class care standards, such as glucose and ventilation management.
