In this chapter, we describe how to build a centralized tele-ICU program. We provide information regarding the various tele-ICU operational models, the roles of the tele-ICU staff, and the technological requirements. We provide suggestions for the optimal design of a tele-ICU hub and the ICUs participating in an ICU telemedicine program. We also describe what administrators and healthcare providers need to consider prior to starting a telemedicine program, common pitfalls, and few interesting cases of tele-ICU designs.
