MUSC Health Expands Telemedicine Partnership with Hicuity Health

Columbia Hospital Becomes Latest Covered by Tele-ICU Partnership

Hicuity Health, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced the launch of tele-ICU services at MUSC Health Columbia Medical Center Downtown in Columbia, South Carolina. The new service launch draws upon MUSC Health’s long-standing collaboration with Hicuity Health which delivers 24/7/365 telemedicine services to hospitals across the state.

Since 2014, MUSC Health and Hicuity Health have worked together to ensure the citizens of South Carolina have access to state-of-the-art critical care regardless of location. The two organizations currently partner to ensure critical care access across the state, collaborating on tele-ICU programs in hospitals across a variety of geographic markets.

Hicuity Health services combine the expertise and experience of its clinical team and the enabling technology of its customized HUB platform to provide advanced tele-ICU support for the patients and bedside teams of its hospital partners. With the addition of Hicuity’s tele-ICU care, Columbia Medical Center Downtown will have the tools and support to provide care to higher-acuity patients while keeping them in their community.

“MUSC Health is proud to collaborate with Hicuity Health to address acute care needs for patients in the Midlands,” said Tallulah Holmstrom, MD, Regional CMO, MUSC Health. “We’ve experienced the improved care and outcomes for patients at other South Carolina hospitals and appreciate the opportunity to extend that care to Columbia.”
