Addressing COVID-19

News. We certainly have news.

COVID has dominated the news cycles for the past many months. Grim tallies and trend lines have been the news norm, numbing Americans with a magnitude that was previously unimaginable. This month we have, thankfully, some very good news to go with the continued grim.

The good news:

The vaccines that many said couldn’t be created this quickly have, indeed, arrived. The pharma industry cooperation that many doubted they’d see has been breathtaking to behold.  The collective demonstrated brain power of the brilliant, motivated research professionals laser-focused on helping the world has been a scientific tour de force.

Not good news:

The ongoing waves of infection are fact and not fiction. The impact of spiking numbers of hospitalized patients and rising mortality figures has moved into the range of the unfathomable.

The Hicuity Health News:

We can see light, but the tunnel is long. Science will ultimately win. The question is when.

The Hicuity Health team continues to be focused on our client hospitals (new and existing) and helping them deliver great, timely care.  We have seen the rise and fall (and significant rise again) of regional COVID-19 hot spots. We have served camera-to-shoulder with client provider teams living through another round of patient surges that exceeded all plans.

We continue to deliver excellent and compassionate care to patients in need, surge services to client facilities in need, and accelerated implementations to new partners in need. We have also sustained and enhanced our role as a distributor and facilitator of critical care best practices.

Because the foreseeable future looks a lot like the most recent past, our priorities continue unchanged.  Help everyone we can in any way we can.

 

Let us know how we can help you.

Rapid Deployment

At the outset of the pandemic, Hicuity Health fielded urgent requests for ICU care services from a range of hospitals and other entities. The company responded to each request via a variety of rapid response capabilities including rapid implementation protocols and/or utilization of surge compatible technology solutions. In total, over the course of one month more than 50 hospitals initiated, expanded, or extended tele-ICU capabilities in response to the unprecedented demands resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bedside Tele-ICU Access

As the coronavirus pandemic spread, a surprising issue early on was the rapid depletion of PPE (personal protective equipment supplies). Our Hicuity Health technology teams worked quickly to develop the means of deploying tele-ICU audio/visual control within the hospital and offer it to each of our partners. Using this capability, bedside physicians and nurses are able to conduct a virtual visit with a COVID-19 patient at any time without increasing their risk of infection nor depleting scarce PPE supplies.
