The ICU gets connected — from connectedworldmag.com


For most of us, when we need healthcare we go to our clinic or hospital and see a doctor. But in many parts of the world, that’s not an option. In small towns located far from urban centers, especially in developing countries, the trip to see a doctor may be next to impossible. Luckily, connected technology is making it easier for patients to gain access to healthcare remotely.

In places where healthcare is a scarce resource, technology can bring it closer to people. In India, Fortis Healthcare, www.fortishealthcare.com, is partnering with GE Healthcare, www.gehealthcare.com, to create what’s known as an eICU (electronic intensive care unit). The CritiNext eICU is being deployed in 34 ICU beds in two hospitals in India.
