PENN E-LERT is a telemedicine critical care program that utilizes state of the art technology to provide a sophisticated layer of innovative clinical support to the intensive care units (ICUs) throughout the UPHS enterprise. Clinicians reside at a distant location on Penn Medicine campus and thus deploy software technology, hardware technology, and trended data analysis to proactively identify impending or evolving patient problems, continually offering real-time clinical decision support, in collaboration with the bedside clinicians, on conditions that require immediate attention. PENN E-LERT clinicians are experienced in critical care with a telemedicine-ICU subspecialty skill set. In addition to the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to function as a bedside critical care clinician, the E-LERT clinician must possess high-level skills in communication, collaboration, decision-making, systems-thinking, and computer literacy, necessitated by the remote nature of the practice environment. The E-LERT position requires visual acuity, keen hearing, clear distinctive speech, and manual dexterity. The E-LERT position requires long periods of continued sitting or standing at a desk in an office setting. The E-LERT position requires communication with bedside clinicians via two-way camera technology. The E-LERT clinician must be confident, composed, responsive, and approachable when diligently interacting with patients, families, and bedside clinicians via two-way audio-video technology.
