The study investigated a multiple-site intensive care unit telemedicine programme. This remote care programme used intensivists and physician extenders to provide supplemental monitoring and management of intensive care unit (ICU) patients for 19 hours per day from a centralised, off-site facility. Supporting software, including electronic data display, physician note- and order-writing applications, and a computer-based decision support-tool, were available both in the ICU and at the remote site. This programme was compared to usual the usual standard of care in the ICU.
