NICUtrition Platform

Our Proprietary Data Platform

The NICUtrition® platform utilizes high-fidelity clinical data and a vast biobank of preterm infant stool samples. Our comprehensive and proprietary dataset integrates feeding protocols, microbiome profiles and clinical information to provide real-time decision support for clinical teams.

Our Product Suite

The NICUtrition suite of products provides actionable information in real time, enabling hospitals and clinical teams to standardize care protocols, and customize treatment plans by quantifying preterm infant gut health.

NICUtrition Analytics

NICUtrition Analytics is the only enteral feeding protocol audit and monitoring solution that measures adherence to a hospital’s protocol, either as a historical snapshot or ongoing, and correlates it to preterm infant outcomes.

Measures Protocol Compliance
Measures Protocol Compliance

NICUtrition Analytics measures protocol compliance in two ways – as single audit or ongoing monitoring – providing flexibility to NICUs depending on their needs. The one-time historical snapshot of protocol adherence provides a baseline for compliance and outcomes, bringing to light areas for improvement. In addition, NICUtrition Analytics can offer an ongoing monitoring solution to continuously evaluate compliance with existing feeding protocols to standardize practice, improve outcomes and raise quality of care.

Meets Quality Collaborative Reporting Requirements
Meets Quality Collaborative Reporting Requirements

By streamlining and standardizing data extraction, NICUtrition Analytics provides an efficient and cost-effective way for hospitals to meet Quality Collaborative reporting requirements.

Drives Better Outcomes
Drives Better Outcomes

It is scientifically proven that consistently following clinical practice guidelines results in better patient outcomes. By promoting adherence to NICU feeding protocols, the solution enables better outcomes for preterm infants.

Supports Education and Training
Supports Education and Training

NICUtrition Analytics clearly identifies when NICU protocols are not being followed, or if protocols are being followed, but outcomes are not strong. This allows for clinical teams to continuously educate and train their staff on established protocols and make adjustments as needed.

NICUtrition Guidance

NICUtrition Guidance is the only real-time feeding decision support tool to standardize the practice of feeding, reduce documentation time and streamline workflow in the NICU. NICUtrition Guidance supports best practices and helps ensure consistent delivery of care through real-time alerts and a point of care interface, resulting in reduced length of stay.

Ensures Consistent Delivery of Care
Ensures Consistent Delivery of Care

NICUtrition Guidance ensures consistent delivery of care by presenting protocols in an intuitive and easy-to-use format. NICUtrition Guidance simplifies the interpretation of protocols, reducing variability among clinicians and resulting in better patient outcomes.

Simplifies
Workflow
Simplifies
Workflow

NICUtrition Guidance fits seamlessly within existing workflows and simplifies processes by providing clear protocol instructions to clinical teams. The solution also automates reporting via real-time alerts and a POC interface, streamlining processes and improving patient care. NICUtrition Guidance easily integrates with EMRs, including EPIC and Cerner.

Improves Nurse and Patient Satisfaction
Improves Nurse and Patient Satisfaction

Studies show that on average, nurses spend 20% of their time on documentation each week. With NICUtrition Guidance, nurses are able to streamline documentation and increase time spent at the bedside with both patients and parents.

Studies show that standardizing feeding protocols in the NICU reduces a patients’ length of stay. The NICUtrition Guidance solution ensures consistent delivery of care by presenting protocols in an intuitive and easy-to-use format, thereby reducing the length of stay and sending babies home sooner.

NICUtrition MAGI

Based on the largest set of microbiome profiles and corresponding clinical data, NICUtrition MAGI (Microbiome And Gut Inflammation) is a digital diagnostic that leverages machine learning to provide a real-time quantification of gut inflammation, without the need for sequencing in the clinic. Drawing on a proprietary and extensive dataset, NICUtrition MAGI enables better decision-making through risk stratification and accelerates the adoption of new nutritional or microbial interventions, when needed.

Supports Personalized Care Plans
Supports Personalized Care Plans

By providing a real-time quantification of gut inflammation, NICUtrition MAGI supports personalized care plans for preterm infants by enabling better decision-making around nutrition, antibiotics, and probiotics. The digital diagnostic enables immediate feedback on the state of the gut, allowing clinical teams to adjust care in real time.

Enables Risk Stratification
Enables Risk Stratification

NICUtrition MAGI provides the opportunity for risk stratification so that clinical teams can allocate care and resource focus appropriately – for both low and high-risk patients – allowing them to get the customized care they need in order to thrive.

Minimizes Growth Failure
Minimizes Growth Failure

NICUtrition MAGI minimizes preterm infants’ failure to thrive by accelerating the advent of new interventions. The solution’s real-time quantification of gut inflammation enables a more personalized care plan, designed to improve outcomes and support healthy growth.

No Need for Sequencing in the Clinic
No Need for Sequencing in the Clinic

Although sequencing is essential to the development of MAGI, its proprietary algorithm uses data already collected as part of routine care, without the need for sequencing in the clinic.

Looking Forward

Never is gut health more important than in the first 1,000 days of life, as this is the most critical period of growth and brain development. Future products from Astarte Medical will include precision care solutions that help improve prenatal and early infant outcomes.
