Newsweek article about eICU's

From Newsweek:

Here's the sub-heading: Small hospitals use technology to run remote ICUs.

Swedish Medical is one of a growing number of hospitals opting for a radical form of outsourcing by using technology and doctors stationed off-site to monitor the well-being of critically ill patients. Instead of listening through a stethoscope, a single doctor can track multiple patients at all three hospitals from a remote facility by watching monitors and Webcams, working from a post that looks a lot like an air-traffic controller's station.
