In addition to the on-staff neonatologist, local providers use teleneonatology to connect with Mayo Clinic experts.
Using real-time video technology, neonatologists, pediatric specialists who assist with ill newborns and premature births, can partner with your local providers in the birth center. Teleneonatology is primarily used during newborn resuscitation or for helping diagnose unusual clinical cases.
Benefits of the program include:
Connects your local team with Mayo Clinic experts.
Reduces time to treatment.
Creates better access to expertise.
Improves patient outcomes.
Reduces cost over time.
Once the telemedicine consultant provides the evaluation and the acute need has been addressed, local providers resume the lead on patient care.
