NICUtrition® is the first real-time, clinical decision support tool designed to monitor and analyze feeding and nutrition delivery in the NICU in order to improve quality of care and achieve healthier outcomes for your most vulnerable patients.
Simplify and improve feeding practices with NICUtrition®
Survival rates for preterm infants continue to improve as a result of advancements in neonatal care and technology. Unfortunately, achieving optimal nutrition management to support the healthy growth and development of these extremely vulnerable patients has remained a challenge…until now.
Unlock the power of your patient data
to deliver better care with better results
NICUtrition® extracts feeding and nutritional data directly from your hospital’s electronic medical record (EMR) to provide valuable insights and analytics through an intuitive dashboard display. The system enables clinical teams to track improvements in feeding milestones, test quality improvement outcomes over time, and quantify the correlated patient outcomes — for an individual baby or for the entire NICU.
NICUtrition® is available in three offerings to suit the individual needs of your NICU.
Provides both a retrospective review and ongoing monitoring of feeding practices, growth metrics and patient outcomes.
Incorporates a hospital’s enteral feeding protocol, tracks protocol adherence, and includes statistics of outcomes and associated compliance.
Bedside Support Tool enables efficient documentation and presents the patient’s feeding schedule together with growth history and percentile charts.
Designed with a passion for promoting healthy growth and development of preterm infants everywhere
“As research has provided new information, exponentially in recent years, including the advent of molecular studies and “omics” of all kinds, a person at the bedside cannot know all about an infant’s metabolism, growth, development, nutrition, changes over time, influence of diseases and treatments, and all related outcomes.”
William W. Hay, Jr., MD
Chief Medical Officer
"What we feed preterm infants has become more and more complex, from standard infant formulas to emphasis on mother’s own milk, use of donor milk, fortifiers, new formulas, and supplements to formulas, all requiring the need to learn much more about advantages and risks of each."
