What is my money really going to?

The hospital is in need of new monitors that track each baby’s condition continuously. Advantages include:

  • Seamless Data: Accurate, seamless data flows directly into the baby’s electronic medical record.   In an emergency, even the best medical personnel can’t write fast enough to jot down every fact that matters.
  • Automatic Alerts: In an emergency, the new monitors alert physicians by phone. They also alert nurses through their phones, creating a quieter, more effective healing environment.
  • Remote Monitoring: The baby’s physician can monitor vital signs remotely (important because physicians aren’t present in this unit 24/7).
  • More Data: The new monitors provide more data on the baby’s heart rhythm and oxygen flow – both critical factors for newborns. They also gauge blood pressure more accurately. Results include earlier diagnosis, more effective treatment, and quicker release from the hospital.
