One in 10 U.S. births are premature, but many areas of the country lack access to clinicians who can tackle these challenging cases. Virtual health programs provide an answer. Teleneonatology programs can help physicians provide the compassionate, expert care these fragile patients need in their initial days in the hospital and at home.
Teleneonatology Expands Access to Expert Care
U.S. hospitals are struggling to find neonatologists and other pediatric subspecialists at a time when the number of pre-term births is rising. The crisis is most acute in smaller communities.
Early births take a significant emotional and financial toll on families and on hospitals. Using two-way audio-visual virtual health technology, our multi-dimensional teleneonatology program gives on-site physicians access to expert, board-certified neonatologists who can:
- Provide acute inpatient care on a daily basis
- Support remote/level 1 hospitals for emergent situations
- Provide post-discharge and transitional care support
Teleneonatology can keep moms and babies together, improve patient outcomes and allow hospitals to serve patients who are facing even the most difficult emergencies.
