The tele-ICU program enables the delivery of enhanced critical care services, ensuring patients have immediate access to expert medical attention.

Leading healthtech innovator, HealthNet Global (HNG) has unveiled its tele-ICU program at Apollo Spectra Hospital in Pusa Road, Delhi.

This initiative leverages technology to offer remote monitoring and expert medical intervention, breaking down geographical barriers to provide uninterrupted critical care services.

The introduction of tele-ICU facilities in India marks a significant advancement in medical management, particularly in rural areas where access to high-quality healthcare services was previously limited.

This innovative approach expedites decision-making regarding patient transfers to hospitals with superior facilities while also alleviating the financial burden associated with such transfers.

Sharing thoughts, Vikram Thaploo, CEO, HealthNet Global, said, "The launch of the tele-ICU program at Apollo Spectra heralds a new era in critical care, where advanced technology meets compassionate healthcare. Our aim is to enhance the quality of care and save lives by bringing expert medical attention directly to patients, regardless of their location."

Bridging Critical Care Access

Thaploo further highlighted the goal of bridging the gap in critical care access through state-of-the-art telemedicine solutions. He emphasized the importance of ensuring that every patient receives timely and expert medical attention, setting new standards for healthcare delivery.

Talking about the collaboration, Rupinder Kaur, COO, Spectra & Secondary Care Partner Network, Apollo Spectra Hospital, stated, "This marks our second partnership with HNG, after the launch of the Tele-ICU program at our Chirag Enclave facility in Delhi. We are thrilled to collaborate with them to introduce the Tele-ICU program at Apollo Spectra Hospitals in this brand new facility at Pusa Road too."

Kaur further reiterated the hospital's commitment to providing top-quality healthcare services to patients. According to her, the Tele-ICU program enables the delivery of enhanced critical care services, ensuring immediate access to expert medical attention for patients.

The tele-ICU system is being recognized as a boon, especially for people in villages, preventing delays in accessing high-quality medical care.

In February this year, to enhance healthcare accessibility in rural areas, Karnataka Health Minister Dinesh Gundurao announced the phased implementation of a tele-ICU system in all taluk hospitals across the state.

It is designed to bridge the gap by establishing ICU centers at the taluk level and monitoring them centrally. This approach ensures that patients in remote villages receive super-specialty care without traveling to distant district hospitals.

In a similar development, Medanta & GE Healthcare collaborated to introduce Tele ICU services in India. The Tele-ICU system powered by GE Healthcare's Mural platform provides critical care specialists with real-time data analytics, predictive analytics, and clinical decision support tools.
