Omaha, Neb. – June 30, 2023 – CQuence Health has announced an investment partnership with a leading tele-critical care provider, Intercept Telehealth.
Intercept Telehealth provides tele-critical care to hospital intensive care units (ICUs), among other specialties including tele-neurology, tele-stroke and more, allowing 24/7 access to board-certified intensivists and critical care nurses for continual virtual monitoring and early intervention. CQuence will support Intercept’s growth, helping to ensure that hospitals everywhere have access to the gold standard of critical care.
“Telehealth is not only convenient, but it is also a necessary tool to deliver high-quality care,” said Mike Cassling, chairman and CEO of CQuence Health. “Intercept Telehealth understands the challenges ICUs face. By elevating the quality of care, improving patient outcomes and expanding the range of services offered, Intercept is changing telehealth for the better. We’re excited about this partnership and believe it aligns seamlessly with our vision to improve healthcare access and outcomes.”
Tele-critical care has become a powerful tool to augment limited resources in rural counties that may lack critical care expertise and large urban hospitals facing traffic surges. At times, there is a risk that volume can adversely affect the ability to care for all patients. Tele-critical care leverages technology, expertise and collaboration between remote clinicians and their bedside colleagues to mitigate that risk.
“I’ve witnessed first-hand how critical care patient outcomes suffer because of hospital staff shortages or delays in care,” said Dr. Diego Reino, Intercept Telehealth founder and CEO. “By delivering gold-standard care that is consistent, hospitals experience a financial benefit and patients experience the clinical benefit. Patients are discharged from the ICU faster with fewer complications, and experience more proactive and efficient care.”
