Minutes can make the difference in life and death when it comes to decisions in the intensive care unit at a hospital. But there aren't enough highly-trained critical care doctors for all the patients in the ICU.
Now Ochsner Health System is the first to get new technology that could make your treatment safer and your stay shorter. The eICU program is being installed now and will start at some of the Ochsner hospitals the beginning of next year. All Ochsner hospitals will be on line with the program later in 2012.
