Ochsner Goes Viral 

  Ochsner Health System is enhancing its critical care hospital units with Philips' VISICU state-of-the-art eICU program, which provides two-way audio-video links between a physician at a patient's bedside and critical care doctors and nurses off-site. The program allows collaborations in making decisions about a patient's care.

  The software detects and advises clinicians of trends and changes in a patient's condition and has proved to reduce complications and shorten the length of a hospital stay.

  About 150 beds in Ochsner hospitals across Louisiana will be equipped with the program, which is being installed this month. — Ghawaly
