As hospitals in New York City reel from the constant influx of patients with critical illness due to COVID-19, Baltimore digital health company ICmed, LLC has partnered with Maryland and North Carolina doctors to provide rapid tele-consultation to assist with the shortage of critical care specialists. The company is phasing in this support at two particularly hard-hit NYC Health + Hospitals centers, Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn and Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. Both hospitals have exceeded both their normal ICU capacity in terms of beds and specialists. “The pandemic has caused an unprecedented surge in our ICUs and our hospitals have 4-5x the amount of ICU patients than usual, with a tremendous increase in critical care consults as well,” says Dr. Mona Krouss, Patient Safety Officer at NYC Health + Hospitals.
ICmed’s digital health platform allows patients, care providers and physicians to connect in order to promote optimal health. “We knew we had a solution that could be used to provide critical medical support to areas of the country that needed it the most. We rapidly adapted the ICmed platform to support the front-line medical professionals caring for patients during this international crisis. This effort fits perfectly with our mission,” says Anil Kshepakaran, ICmed’s founder and CEO.
