Tampa General Hospital Implements Virtual Hospital Platform

Tampa General Hospital Implements Virtual Hospital Platform. Tampa (Florida) General Hospital (TGH).

To enhance patient care and transform the way care teams communicate and collaborate, Tampa (Florida) General Hospital (TGH) is expanding its use of a virtual hospital platform in its intensive care unit and plans to expand to other care teams.

ThinkAndor Virtual Hospital from Andor Health is a configurable, cloud-based platform designed to improve the patient experience and the working environment for clinicians and ancillary teams; to deliver real-time actionable intelligence; and to assist in more efficient clinical decision-making. It uses artificial intelligence to stream multiple end points into a single dashboard or connect with the hospital’s electronic health record system.

TGH, one of the nation’s largest hospitals (1,040 beds), is part of a not-for-profit academic health system encompassing 17 medical group primary care offices, a Level I trauma center, comprehensive stroke center, family care center, outpatient center, virtual health services, organ transplant center, burn center and 21 imaging outpatient radiology centers.

The virtual platform gives care teams the ability to:

  • Observe a patient’s clinical progress virtually.
  • Invite clinicians and providers for provider-to-provider consultations
  • Host multidisciplinary calls.
  • Connect specialists for on-demand remote consultations.
  • Invite family members, caregivers or even friends to join the patient’s virtual conversation.
  • Set up alerts for fall risk, elopement and patient movement.
  • Capture a patient’s self-reported information.

Nishit Patel, M.D., chief medical informatics officer at TGH, says the platform gives clinicians the ability to care for patients using the right clinical content and context remotely. It allows caregivers to continuously observe at-risk patients from anywhere, at any time, driving a collaborative practice while improving overall patient outcomes.
