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.

The eICU Sepsis Management Program provides health systems with the tools to automate and accelerate key steps of severe sepsis screening in order to drive earlier identification and improved sepsis bundle compliance, it claims. The program has been implemented at Banner Desert Hospital, part of Phoenix-based Banner Health, where the company says it has yielded improvements in identifying and treating patients.
