Anchorage, Alaska-based Providence Alaska Medical Center has implemented an eICU Program from Netherlands-based Philips VISICU to enhance care of critically ill patients in remote communities of Alaska, it says.

According to the company, the eICU Program combines early warning alerts and remote monitoring technology to connect off-site critical care specialists to ICU patients and their care teams within the medical center. Providence plans to offer the program to surrounding hospitals, as a supplement to local care, in order to reduce unnecessary complications, transfers and patient length of stay.

Providence Alaska Medical Center is part of Providence Health and Services, a not-for-profit network of hospitals, care centers, health plans, physicians, clinics, home health services, affiliated services and educational facilities.
