MUSC Health Lancaster Medical Center Launches High-Acuity Telemedicine with Advanced ICU Care

Tele-ICU Integration Supports Bedside Team
with Clinical Expertise

Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine, announced a tele-ICU services launch with MUSC Health – Lancaster Medical Center in Lancaster, SC. This critical care partnership draws upon a long-standing collaboration between Advanced ICU Care and MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) Health to provide 24/7/365 care delivery in ICUs across the state of South Carolina.

Advanced ICU Care leverages U.S. board-certified clinicians and its HUB telemedicine system to deliver high-acuity clinical expertise to MUSC Health – Lancaster Medical Center. This provides an extra layer of support to the bedside team and proven results for critically-ill patients. The addition of tele-critical care services ensures that MUSC Health – Lancaster Medical Center can treat more patients within their own community without transferring to a larger facility, allowing for greater patient support and comfort during treatment.

MUSC Health and Advanced ICU Care have now partnered to bring tele-ICU care to ten hospitals throughout South Carolina. The growth of their care collaboration recognizes the advantage of ensuring high-acuity clinical expertise for patient care.

“MUSC Health – Lancaster Medical Center is proud to partner with Advanced ICU Care, as the care collaboration will afford us the opportunity to strengthen ICU and CCU care delivery by treating our most critically-ill patients close to home,” said Brian Greig DNP, RN, Chief Nursing Officer of the MUSC Health – Lancaster System. “With the ability to care for more high-acuity patients with state-of-the-art technology as well as expert tele-specialists, our patients stand to benefit from both an improved care experience and improved clinical outcomes.”

“Advanced ICU Care is pleased to partner with MUSC to extend our collaborative high-acuity care delivery to MUSC Health – Lancaster Medical Center,” said Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care. “We look forward to working closely with the highly-skilled hospital clinical teams to provide innovative care delivery to the communities that they serve.”
