Out of necessity, because of staffing-related transitions affecting the core physician intensivist group at Providence Alaska Medical Center, Cecilee Ruesch, R.N., and her colleagues in critical care at the 320-bed hospital in Anchorage, Alaska, decided to pursue a rarely tried strategy: supporting their hospital's intensive care units (ICUs) with nurse-staffed remote monitoring via their new electronic ICU (elCU
) capability (their vendor is the Baltimore-based Philips Visicu).
According to Miovski, who worked with Casale on the planning of HfAM, "knowing that older versions of the universal room concept had not been successful, we were collectively challenged to understand what made the model fail and how it could be redesigned to succeed at Geisinger." One solution was to leverage technology and integrate the acuity-adaptable room with an innovative elCU
Program that enhances physicians' ability to care for Geisinger's sickest patients in the HfAM and other intensive care units at the main campus and ambulatory sites.
