New tech could reduce intensive care mortality rates
For now, the basement of OSF Healthcare's corporate headquarters is home to the newest technology in intensive care units, not just for OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, but for OSF Healthcare hospitals in four other cities. The eICU program is more than technological bells and whistles, say OSF Healthcare officials who announced the new program Wednesday at corporate offices. The high-tech ICU could lead to reduced mortality rates and better outcomes across OSF Healthcare's system. Mortality rates could decline by 20 percent, said Dr. William Tillis, OSF eICU medical director.
