Mercy SafeWatch: Transforming Patient Care through Telehealth Services
Innovation in telemedicine is a top priority for healthcare providers around the world, and you need look no further than the heartland of America to find Mercy – the sixth largest Catholic health system in the U.S.
Vidyo’s visual communications technology is integrated into Mercy’s central TeleICU command center in St. Louis, which also supports other critical care telemedicine services at Mercy such as telestroke, telecardiology and teleperinatal. With the integration of Vidyo and Philips® eCare Manager, SafeWatch is able to provide around-the-clock vigilance of critically ill patients.
Over 450 Philips TelelCU monitored beds have been equipped with Vidyo so that Mercy’s critical care doctors and nurses can watch over and communicate with ICU patients, their families and bedside healthcare staff via Vidyo from a central command center.
Mercy“With Vidyo we are able to do many things a bedside physician can do, except physically touch a patient. We can see the entire room, from the drips to the ventilator panel, to how the patient looks. We can talk to the family, patient or nurses in the room.”
