Tele-Critical Care and COVID-19

What SCCM is Doing

The Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is developing and deploying tele-critical care efforts in response to COVID-19, including:

  • Working with federal agencies and other stakeholders on a large-scale effort that will test various tele-critical care platforms to identify solutions that can be scaled and integrated nationally.
  • Partnering with the American Medicine Association on Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) initiative related to telemedicine reimbursement.
  • Establishing a network with representation from major stakeholders from academic, industry, government, and other professional organizations to improve inter-organizational communications and collaboration.

What You Can Do

Virtual volunteers are needed for a tele-critical care pilot.

The Society of Critical Care Medicine is seeking volunteers to serve remotely in a tele-critical care pilot program. The pilot will connect licensed ICU clinicians with non-ICU clinicians.

Volunteers must be licensed in the United States to provide medical care with a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. Selected volunteers will be contacted with additional information and will have the opportunity to enroll or decline. If the pilot proves viable, a wider role out is anticipated.

Demand for critical may be unprecedented, requiring rapid adoption and expansion of telemedicine. In a recent survey only 30% of respondents said their ICU is equipped with a telemedicine system that could be used to manage these patients. This tip sheet will help guide you whether your telemedicine solution is enterprise or homegrown.
