For post-ICU recovery clinics, the opportunities that exist for telehealth and mobile
technologies to help extend care delivery, reduce costs, improve the quality of care, and the patient experience in the post discharge period are significant. The demand for intensive care is projected to rise because of an aging population with complex comorbidities and the expanded use of advanced healthcare treatments, and as a result, the number of ICU survivors will rise . Survivors of critical illness require early identification of symptoms and early interventions to decrease symptom burden and enhance their quality of life. Redesign of post-ICU care management and post acute care delivery systems is needed to engage ICU survivors in self-care, monitor for early signs of deteriorating health, intervene early, and reduce costs. As new value-based payment models for medical services increasingly take hold, financial incentives will also need to align with rehabilitation-oriented services in this population with greater focus on post-ICU care.
