ST. LOUIS, Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced ICU Care, the nation's leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced that Roper St. Francis Healthcare (RSFH), a not-for-profit health system in South Carolina, has rolled out the company's tele-ICU services in three of their full-service hospitals. The implementation of the Advanced ICU Care partnership includes Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital, Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital (West Ashley), and the recently opened Roper St. Francis Berkeley Hospital (Summerville). RSFH partnered with Advanced ICU Care in collaboration with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC Health) to enable the tele-ICU service offering in support of both its critically ill patients and bedside care teams.
RSFH is the leading provider of adult healthcare in South Carolina's Lowcountry and offers the most comprehensive healthcare network with services in more than 110 facilities and doctors' offices located throughout the Lowcountry. The bedside teams at RSFH's three hospitals will be supported on a 24/7 basis by Advanced ICU Care's team of intensivists, advanced practice providers, and nurses with advanced critical care training. Operating from nine technology-enabled care centers, the company's clinical teams deliver unrivaled expertise that is proven to enhance clinical results.
"Roper St. Francis Healthcare embraces the use of telemedicine to provide state-of-the-art care for our community," said Dr. Mitch Siegan, Roper St. Francis Healthcare Chief Medical Officer. "We are proud to expand our ICU care to include Advanced ICU Care's tele-ICU services, giving our bedside teams 24/7 support and improving clinical outcomes for our critically ill patients."
RSFH aimed to provide their communities with around-the-clock intensivists oversight and recognized Advanced ICU Care as the best-fit provider given its leadership and deep experience in the high-acuity telemedicine space. With a proven track record of treating more ICU patients and saving more lives than any other independent tele-ICU provider in the nation, the company supports a diverse range of hospitals and health systems. The company's ICU-specific quarterly performance reporting was also an attractive aspect for RSFH, as the robust reports provide actionable ICU data.
