Netherlands-based Philips has unveiled the eICU Sepsis Management Program, a component of the Philips Visicu eICU designed to leverage advanced telemedicine monitoring technology and clinical decision support to improve communication among care teams in the treatment of severe sepsis patients, says the company.
