Caregility goes global, bringing its tele-ICU solution to Saudi Arabia

Eatontown-based Caregility, a telehealth leader, on Monday said it successfully implemented its 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.

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. 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.

“Health care organizations across the globe are hurting due to challenges related to staffing shortages and patient surge,” Bob Zimmermann, vice president of international business development at Caregility, said. “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 its ability to quickly deploy instances in public and private hosting environments including Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, AWS and GCP.

Caregility plans to expand initiatives in the Middle East and North Africa region, it added.
