As part of this, Apollo is bringing the latest – PROTON technology to India for the first time in this part of the world. eICU is one more technology which helps to remotely monitor and aid in treating critical patients in ICUs, in any part of the world from a Command Center in a hospital like Apollo Health City. eICU makes a huge difference to health care, there aren’t many specialist intensivists but eICU will help in connecting where ever they are and seek their expertise in diagnosing and treating a patient in a remote hospital. The smaller hospitals can connect through this and offer the best ICU care at their hospitals."
