Neonatology

Enhance quality of care with 24/7 access to neonatal specialists 

Providing adequate neonatology services presents a large burden for many hospitals with limited resources

Ensuring your smallest, most vulnerable patients are properly cared for improves the clinical capabilities of your organization and can have major impacts to minimize malpractice liability while reducing transport costs.

InTouch Health Drives Results

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital consistently received newborn transfers for conditions that could be treated at the local care facility if there was access to specialist expertise. This health system looked at telehealth solutions to help triage appropriate neonatal transfers.

Additionally, a virtual neonatology program would allow remote intervention assistance to on-site providers to stabilize the patient while waiting for the transport team to arrive or assist in determining whether a transport could be prevented.
