A remote check-in on baby
Rozlyn Contreras sleeps inside an incubator equipped with a webcam in the neonatal unit of Parkview Community Hospital in Riverside, Calif. "The questions that you are going to be asked as a clinician are going to change from, 'How is my baby doing?' to 'I see that my baby is positioned a different way. Why is that?' " says Blake Rutherford, a founder of the NICVIEW system. "Parents are becoming more involved in the babies' care and learning a lot more, which makes for a better experience for them. When the baby comes home, they are more educated."
