The eACCESS initiative aims to make critical care specialists available round the clock in order to provide high quality care to patients in the ICU. The state-of-the-art hardware and software products enable clinicians to connect to, and monitor, multiple ICUs from a central location. The central command center acts as a hub and the peripheral ICUs as spokes. Clinical data from equipment connected to patients in the peripheral ICUs is displayed as a “dashboard”, enabling continuous monitoring of vital data and laboratory values alongside the patient's electronic medical record. This initiative will benefit hospitals that face challenges managing ICU patients. eACCESS is currently available in India and is being used to monitor approximately 100 beds across the country.
