In India, home healthcare service provider HealthCare at HOME (HCAH) has partnered with Critinext -- Asia's largest e-ICU network -- to enhance their ICU at home services with e-monitoring capabilities.
Through this partnership, HealthCare at HOME and Critinext will provide 24/7 intensive care to long-term ICU patients whom the doctors will e-monitor through ICU setups in the comfort of their home.
"This partnership will offer 24/7 intensive care under expert supervision to the patients at the comfort of their home and help us improve the service," said Vivek Srivastava, Co-Founder and CEO at HealthCare at HOME.
It also decreases the chances of complications and hospital acquired infections. Hospitals can also have higher community connect and extended reach via these services, the statement said.
Apart from providing intensive care, Critinext also offers live streaming of continuous bedside monitoring to the command centre. The patients will receive tech-friendly monitoring through digital clinical assessment forms and electronic visit reports from doctors.
The services will be provided by staff comprehensively trained with Live ICU Training, and BLS Training, certified by the American Heart Association.
"We are pleased to collaborate with HealthCare at HOME as not just patients, doctors will also get benefited by this service. It also increases retention of patients and greater reach to the hospitals," added Pinak Shrikhande, Director at Critinext.
