New Breakthrough Graphical Dashboard to Advance eICU Telehealth Offering
New Orleans, LA - Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA - announced the launch of its IntelliSpace eCareManager 3.9 health care platform, powered by orb, during the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2013 conference and exhibition. Included in Philips' latest offering to its eICU program is orb, a new graphical dashboard that is actuated by over 100 clinical rules, to analyze, process and visualize complex clinical data in real time and tell a better story about what is going on with that specific patient, and in a visually digestible form.
Currently, Philips eICU customers have oversight for nearly 7,000 ICU beds, with approximately 150 patients being monitored in an average Tele-ICU simultaneously, with larger sites caring for over 400 patients on any given day. To present data to support proactive patient interaction, a new type of population-based representation is needed.
Orb's ability to integrate practical data with visual technology helps clinicians to prioritize patient needs and streamline in-hospital care. The dashboard features circles that represent individual patients and their health status. By viewing these circles, clinicians can determine, at a glance, important patient or population-level information, such as which patients are in need of immediate care versus others who might be ready for hospital discharge. It also helps clinicians prioritize information that was previously unavailable due to the massive amount of data created by a single patient, whether they are providing care at the bedside, from the nurses' station, or hundreds of miles away from a remote, centralized telehealth care team.
