Greeneville Community Hospital East Enters Tele-ICU Partnership with Advanced ICU-Care

Technology-Enabled Care Collaboration Anticipated
to Enhance ICU Health Outcomes 

BalladHealthOctober 10, 2019- St. Louis, MO- Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine, announced a tele-ICU services launch with Greeneville Community Hospital East, a 140-bed facility offering an array of in-patient services. The hospital, which is part of the Ballad Health system, has a rich history of delivering excellent patient care, following the vision of hospital founder Dr. C.B. Laughlin.

The new collaborative care partnership engages Advanced ICU Care to provide 24/7/365 monitoring of Greeneville Community Hospital East’s ICU beds by a team of intensivists, advanced practice providers and nurses. Leveraging state-of-the-art telemedicine technology to provide high-acuity clinical expertise and proven results to patients, Advanced ICU Care elevates critical care delivery by decreasing days on ventilation and lowering mortality rates. In addition to improved care outcomes, decreasing patient length of stay and improving ICU bed occupancy were particularly attractive benefits of the Advanced ICU Care offering when Greeneville Community Hospital East evaluated a tele-ICU model.

“Professionally I’ve had a successful history working with Advanced ICU Care and integrating high-acuity telemedicine into a hospital’s workstream,” said Dr. Daniel Lewis, chief medical officer of Greeneville Community Hospital East. “As Ballad Health came together last year, we decided it was important to us to include Advanced ICU Care tele-ICU care services in our consolidated Greeneville facility. Based on my positive experience, I am confident that our hospital’s adoption of tele-ICU will result in improved clinical outcomes in addition to more efficient ICU bed utilization.”

As the largest, most experienced tele-ICU provider in the nation, Advanced ICU Care currently serves more than 90 hospitals and health systems and cares for more than 80,000 patients annually, utilizing critical care professionals in the company’s nine integrated care centers.

“Advanced ICU Care works closely with our hospital partners to develop telemedicine programs and implementation plans to reflect their unique critical care strategies,” said Lou Silverman, CEO Advanced ICU Care. “We are thrilled to enter into a collaborative high-acuity care delivery partnership with Greeneville Community Hospital East and look forward to working in tandem with their team to help them achieve elevated patient outcomes, reduced hospital length of stay and decreased ventilation days.”
