RCCR is an innovative eHealth strategy that leverages Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) to facilitate videoconferencing for real-time assessment of critically ill patients. It connects eleven of the Northwest community Emergency Departments and Intensive Care Units, as well as four remote nursing stations, to critical care trained physicians, nurses and respiratory therapists right here at our Hospital, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
RCCR also aims to improve transport times in the Northwest. Working with the regional partners and ORNGE, RCCR has standardized transport protocols, medication infusion protocols, titration tables, equipment, infusions and formularies.
Through RCCR, regional patients benefit from immediate access to experts in critical care and reduced transport times. It also reduces avoidable and unnecessary patient transfers by providing delivery of care closer to home.
