Frequently Asked Questions

Doesn't tele-ICU cost a fortune?

Not anymore. Making the best use of devices already in hospitals and technology we carry with us every day, Omnicure has created a cost-effective solution.

What hardware is required?

No new hardware. Omnicure works with any mobile phone or tablet using Apple iOS or Android. Our platform is also compatible with web browsers on desktops, laptops, and existing workstations.

As a bedside provider, how do I communicate with a remote intensivist?

As a bedside provider, Omnicure's platform has messaging, audio, and video options to contact a remote intensivist. The intensivist will also be monitoring patients in your unit and receives a notification when a patient's vitals are abnormal.

Where can remote intensivists work from?

Intensivists can work from any location with a secure Wi-Fi or mobile connection. Leave the bunker behind.

As a hospital that needs intensivist coverage, do we need to have your intensivists cover traditional 12-hour shifts?

Not necessarily. We provide flexible models to best suit your needs. This could allow your providers to request on-demand consults, without having a remote intensivist proactively monitoring your unit.

Can this help patients and providers in units besides the ICU?

Yes. Omnicure enables providers treating an acute situation in any unit of the hospital to connect with an intensivist. The flexibility of our solution extends support to EMS and ED providers.

How was Omnicure designed?

Our solution was built by intensivists with many years of experience in multiple tele-ICU centers. We preserved the best features of tele-ICU workflows, without including the inefficient processes.

How is Omnicure different than other tele-ICU systems?

Omnicure does not require any hardware installations and we are device agnostic—all you really need for Omnicure is a smartphone. This allows Omnicure to be useful for critical care consults beyond the ICU. Omnicure also differs from other tele-ICU systems in being an all-in-one solution

What about data security and HIPAA?

Rest assured, Omnicure is HIPAA-compliant. Only credentialed hospital staff can log-in through an authenticated Omnicure account. Fully-encrypted data transmission occurs through a secure network. We also use Amazon Web Services Multi-Factor Authentication to ensure the security of PHI.
