Philips innovation Campus, showcased their IntelliSpace Consultative Critical Care (ICCC) solution service at the Healthcare Conclave in Bengaluru recently. The state of the art hardware and software products that are provided as part of the solution enables clinicians connect to and monitor multiple intensive care units from a central location.
Talking to media, Srinivas Prasad M R, Managing Director of Philips Innovation Centre, Bengaluru says, “Tele medicine is the way forward. We have already made tremendous progress on this front with the hub and spokes model. Recently have tied up with several hospitals both in the government and private sectors. Today we have about 1,500 beds in India and did a pilot in In Karnataka, at Jadgir with partnership with Narayana Healthcare. Following this also have a joint venture with Manipal Hospitals in several places across India”
IntelliSpace CCC is a solution where connectivity is absolutely essential. Therefore the biggest challenge that needs to be overcome especially in the case of rural areas is lack of electricity and low broadband internet penetration, he said.
Trained healthcare providers and intensive care nurses stationed at the command center can monitor the patients in the peripheral ICUs on a 24/7 basis. This saves costs for the patients and gets best care to them, even at remote locations.
