CLEW Virtual ICU: Creating critical care capacity

CLEW Virtual ICU leverages technology to streamline workflows and improve communications, decision-making, and care implementation in critical care. The solution enables early identification and intervention, improved case volumes, and patient context prioritization using FDA-cleared predictive models. CLEW interfaces with existing EMR systems and medical devices and can be deployed either on-premises or on the cloud.

Maximizing scarce ICU resources

Healthcare organizations face crucial challenges in efficiently managing and improving critical care delivery. Enabling remote clinicians to support the bedside teams improves resource utilization and allows flexible resource allocation. It allows for night shift coverage, monitoring extreme situations, or addressing any evolving operational need. Early prediction with improved response and proactive care is a highly effective way to improve ICU outcomes, regardless of care delivery models.

Alarm fatigue

Advanced warning from CLEW Virtual ICU supports proactive interventions. As new devices are introduced, the number of clinical alarms increases, generating up to 1000 alarms per shift. This “over-alerting” without actionable information contributes to the desensitization of the alarms. Alarm fatigue can pose patient safety and quality issues such as delayed responses, dismissed alarms, distrust of alarms, and interruptions in patient care. The CLEW advanced model notifications are driven by multiple features and complex dependencies, so it reduces false alarm rates. Our models’ predictive capabilities enable a more proactive approach.

Clinical data overload

CLEW Virtual ICU puts all the key information in one place to quickly orient the clinician to the patient. A massive amount of patient data scattered across systems makes it difficult to effectively identify, assimilate, and manage clinical resources, real-time patient assessment, and optimal care path decisions. The CLEW Virtual ICU performs score calculations and displays the processed data in an efficient way.

Streamlined processes,
saving time and reducing costs

Real-time clinical situational awareness improves patient coverage ratio, enabling better resource and staff allocation and increasing patient throughput. CLEW Virtual ICU enables workflow prioritization based on a range of factors – including new admissions, task lists, high-risk patient lists, and CLEW notifications. The ICU staff can track high-risk patients, re-prioritize their workload, and make acuity-based staffing decisions based on dynamic input of risk level at the unit level.

Actionable predictive clinical analytics notifications

CLEW Virtual ICU solution takes a holistic approach to deliver early predictive warnings for patient complications. Our solution analyzes multiple parameters before it generates a single alert to predict a potential clinical deterioration, significantly lowering the false alarm rate (FAR). This ability to provide a highly accurate and actionable notification several hours in advance assists in delivering the most effective, properly timed, and resource-efficient response, while avoiding costly and disruptive emergency situations.

Clinical excellence in the ICU

Because clinical practice in the ICU continues to evolve, CLEW Virtual ICU includes a client-defined best practices support (Smart Lists) capability that can utilize any combination of discreet data, including vital signs, ventilator parameters, scoring data, and medications, to identify patients whose care is out of compliance. CLEW Virtual ICU can monitor quality and high-cost interventions; reminders and their cadence can be defined per unit and rule.

Leverage existing patient data

CLEW’s solution harnesses the vast amount of available ICU patient and medical device data without additional data entry. Utilizing a combination of Big Data, machine learning, and high-frequency real-time patient-based data, the solution’s FDA-cleared predictive models deliver accurate predictions for high, moderate, and low-risk patients and an optimized workflow. CLEW Virtual ICU solution includes an AI-based classification model that predicts which patients will not require intervention within an 8-hour window. The low-risk patient classification allows providers to allocate additional resources to critical and unstable patients.


CLEW Virtual ICU is fully scalable and supports rapid deployment, whether implemented as a cloud-based or on-premises solution. The HIPAA-compliant solution integrates into existing EHRs, medical devices, and legacy systems.
