Critical Care Command Centers
Our top-ranked pediatric intensive care experts can provide care and support to your patient and team remotely from our critical care command centers. If partnering with Children’s National for this service, you would have access to a traveling, Wi-Fi powered robot that can visit your patient in their room and transmit real-time video and audio connections to our command center, where our specialists are based. Our specialists can see and communicate with your patients and physician team, and continually monitor vitals to support your team.
Let our team help you provide the best care possible for your patients. If you’re interested in more information or engaging in one of the above services, email us.
