According to the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses’ website, this new wave of “technologically enabled medical networks may be utilized for improving patient safety, bridging distance barriers for rural and underserved areas, providing access to multidisciplinary clinical expertise, shortening ICU lengths of stay, improving patient outcomes and saving costs.”
Last month, the AACCN launched the initial certification exam for the CCRN-E, a credentialed certification for critical care nurses who primarily or exclusively monitor and care for acutely and/or critically ill adult patients in a tele-ICU (e.g. virtual ICU or e-ICU) behind the camera from a remote location. A tele-ICU system involves a command center staffed by physicians and nurses who watch patients using a two-way audio-visual monitoring system to provide support and guidance to the bedside staff.
