The Apollo Telemedicine Networking Foundation, Chennai has been honoured with the “Outstanding ICT-Innovation Award” by HIMSS Asia Pacific for its” I-SEE-U – Virtual Visits to ICU, enhancing Patient Care” initiative

Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 22 Aug,2014

An ICU admission is an extremely traumatic event for the patient as well as for their near and dear ones. To ensure maximum clinical care and to reduce the chances of infection, physical visits to ICU’s by relatives and friends are kept to the absolute minimum. It is also impractical for the primary consultant to make repeated physical visits to the ICU, in order to review the patients. The family would like a status report directly from the primary consultant in the presence of the patient. In an ICU setting sometimes, this is not always possible.

The I-SEE-U™ facility has been designed with this in mind, to enable virtual Visits to individual ICU cubicles, both by consultants, relatives and friends using internet, through a PC, laptop and even a smart phone. The patient’s authorized relatives and friends can now virtually “”SEE”” an ICU patient by remotely switching on a camera installed over the ICU bed.

Consultants can use this facility to make additional virtual visits 24/7 and remotely re-evaluate the patient in great detail. This facility would particularly be useful to NRI’s living abroad, who wish to actually see betterment in their near and dear in ICU. The consultant during a physical visit can also virtually interact with the relatives who will be in the Virtual Visit Room.
