Baptist Health Expands Hicuity Health Tele-ICU Partnership

Hicuity Health, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced the expansion of its telemedicine services relationship with Baptist Health, a 9-hospital system. In this expansion, tele-ICU services were extended to Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville, a facility which provides care to residents throughout western Kentucky. The introduction of Hicuity Health tele-ICU at the Madisonville facility provides around-the-clock critical care support to its Baptist Health team members and their patients. Hicuity Health critical care specialists now provide 24/7 monitoring and intervention for the most critically ill patients in collaboration with Baptist Health clinicians. “The Hicuity Health team serves as an extra layer of care that reassures doctors that their patients are vigilantly monitored even when they are not present in the room,” said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mohan Rao. “There is a deep sense of relief knowing that emerging issues are dealt with immediately, and patients are receiving the highest recommended level of care at a moment’s notice.  We know having intensivists covering these patients reduces the risk of complications and improves patient outcomes.” “Hicuity Health is pleased to grow our Baptist Health system relationship with the addition of Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville to our community of clients,” said Lou Silverman, CEO of Hicuity Health. “Our technology-enabled care supports the Baptist Health team and helps improve clinical outcomes for their patients, assisting Baptist Health to achieve its critical care goals.” Hicuity Health is currently contracted to serve more than 115 hospitals in 30 states. Hicuity Health’s team of U.S. board-certified providers and other clinicians conducts 1.2 million patient interactions annually while caring for 120,000 patients.
