Patients in Banner Boswell's Intensive Care Units benefit from an additional layer of care provided by advanced technology.
Named Banner iCare™, this advanced technology enhances the care and safety of ICU patients by teaming our on-site medical staff with intensive-care specialists who follow patients’ care from a remote monitoring center 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
With the Banner iCare™ monitoring system, patient information, vital signs, laboratory data and X-rays from critically ill patients are fed to an off-site team of intensive-care physician specialists and critical-care nurses.
This solution serves as a high-tech, centralized patient safety net, and provides another set of watchful eyes to provide proactive care by constantly checking early warning indicators for any sign of trouble. If a change is detected, the Banner iCare™ specialists at Banner Desert Medical Center communicate directly with the bedside ICU teams to help determine what the patient needs.
How does it work?
Intensive care specialists based at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Ariz., can watch over you with telemedicine cameras in your room and with highly sensitive monitoring technology that has the ability to pick up early changes in your condition, should they occur. Once a change is detected, the specialists at Banner Desert work with your medical team to help determine what course of action is appropriate for your care.
