A teleintensivist offers the best of both worlds. With VeeMed’s Round & Response model, the teleintensivist conducts ICU rounding and quickly responds to sudden changes in a patient’s condition. The specialist coordinates care with the patient’s physician, with hospital staff, and with family members. The result? Timely, data-driven decisions, the ability to manage higher acuity patients, and fewer costly or unnecessary transfers.
