JAMA study finds remote monitoring in e-ICUs reduced mortality

A study published last week by the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that patients in the ICU of UMass Memorial Medical Center had significantly reduced mortality rate (8.6% as compared to 10.7%) when they were monitored by a remote “eICU.” While there have been many studies conducted on eICUs previously, this is the first one to show a significant improvement in patient outcome.
