Real-time Health Equity Intelligence

Improving NICU Care By Identifying Disparities

Consistent quality of care in the NICU starts with identifying which patient or populations could benefit from additional vigilance and standardization of care.  By identifying care disparities through real-world data, clinicians can improve care, reduce preterm infant co-morbidities and provide equitable, consistent care considering standards of infant nutrition, discharge parameters, and overall patient outcomes.

NICUtrition® ECI

Health Equity IQ

NICUtrition Equitable Care Intelligence (ECI) is an EMR-integrated platform that monitors care and associated outcomes of preterm infants.  ECI enables unit-wide tracking of key care performance metrics by race and ethnicity throughout the patient journey from birth to discharge.  Our Patient Report enables the NICU team to assess health equity provision at the patient level, against the unit as a whole, by gestational age cohort and compared to racial or ethnic peers.  

The Nutrition and Care Delivery dashboards allow clinicians to identify which patient populations require additional attention during their stay in the NICU.  The Discharge and Outcomes dashboards track infant mortality and comorbidities and disparities at discharge by race and ethnicity.

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.
