Caregility, a US-based enterprise telehealth leader dedicated to connecting care for patients and clinicians everywhere, is pleased to announce the successful implementation of the Caregility Cloud tele-ICU solution at Seha Virtual Hospital. Seha is the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Health’s premier virtual care hospital providing more than 30 specialized clinical services to 130 hospitals throughout the Kingdom, including emergency and critical advice, specialty clinics, multidisciplinary committees, medical support services, and home care services.
To date, the Caregility tele-ICU implementation has facilitated approximately 5,000 sessions of remote clinical support from Seha Virtual Hospital to 17 hospitals throughout the Kingdom. The adoption of the tele-ICU program at Seha reflects a global trend of virtual care innovation aimed at mobilizing a broader range of services for hospitals, regardless of geographic location, to improve patient response times and outcomes and reduce pressure on in-person clinical staff.
“Healthcare organizations across the globe are hurting due to challenges related to staffing shortages and patient surge,” said Bob Zimmermann, Vice President of International Business Development at Caregility. “Our mission is to enable reliable virtual care delivery worldwide that universally improves patient access and better supports providers by bringing virtual engagement to bedside care. Seha’s swift onboarding of clinical staff and significant utilization in a short amount of time highlights the clinical and operational capabilities of the Caregility Cloud platform and the ease with which it can be quickly deployed and adopted globally.”
“The Caregility Cloud platform is a secure, flexible, and scalable solution that is easily adapted to address strict data security requirements in any region of the world because of Caregility’s ability to quickly deploy instances in public and private hosting environments including Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, AWS, and GCP,” noted Bin Guan, Chief Product and Innovation Officer at Caregility.
Caregility plans to expand initiatives in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and will be exhibiting in the USA Pavilion (booth 52) at the 2023 Arab Health conference hosted by Informa Markets from Jan. 30 – Feb. 2, 2023, in Dubai.
