iCare Center

Expert nurses monitor patients in the iCare Center at Banner Gateway Medical Center

 
Banner Gateway Medical Center is the first hospital in the country to use this innovative tool for all its medical and surgical patients, providing patients with an extra level of care and a quicker response to their needs.
 
Banner Health uses iCare to monitor intensive-care patients throughout its system; Banner Gateway is entering the next phase of this unique program by using this remote patient monitoring system for its medical/surgical patients.
 
How iCare works for patients
Expert nurses, nurse practitioners and case managers work in the iCare Center 24 hours a day, tracking patient vital signs and test results and alerting staff to potential complications before they become more serious. The team can identify immediate patient needs, provide support to nurses in the patient room, assist with admission and discharge processes, answer patient and family requests, and provide patient education.
 
Patients benefit from early intervention for such symptoms as elevated blood pressure, irregular heart rates and poor oxygen saturation due to the technology and 24-hour monitoring of iCare.
 
How Does iCare Work?
iCare uses a two-way, audiovisual communication system that allows iCare Center staff to see and speak directly with the patient in a room. Patients can see and hear the nurse on a monitor located across from their beds.
