With the internet of things (IoT) poised to permeate every aspect of our lives, Child Health Imprints created a streaming-enabled platform aimed at reducing mortality in preterm infants. The iNICU system aggregates health and video data for doctors working to save babies’ lives.

Child Health Imprints was founded to improve clinical outcomes. The company developed an integrated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (iNICU) with one goal in mind: reducing neonatal mortality.

The cloud-hosted appliance assimilates real-time data from the disparate biomedical devices used to monitor preterm infants — including ventilators, monitors, and blood gas analyzers. In addition to reducing time-to-treatment and improving quality of care, the product enables remote monitoring of neonates in rural regions via video streaming.

The amount of data collected in intensive care is exhausting. Respiration rate, heart rate, lab data, and PACS all contribute to the information tracked for each child. But without video streaming, Child Health Imprints’ iNICU solution would lack a crucial data point for doctors: observation. By incorporating video streaming, the innovators at Child Health Imprints were able to build this human aspect of medicine into the iNICU platform, providing video, clinical, and vital data are now integrated into one solution — allowing clinicians down the hall and across the world to make informed, real-time decisions that save babies’ lives.

The company needed a streaming partner with battle-tested technology and engineering expertise to meet the requirements of regulatory bodies in the medical sector. They chose Wowza Media Systems because Wowza could provide low-latency, high-quality video feeds to support life-critical decision-making.

Child Health Imprints’ iNICU device promises to reduce human error in neonatal care, while maintaining a human touch. Both physicians and premature babies will benefit from the innovative platform. And thanks to video streaming, it will bring skilled doctors to rural populations — affordably and conveniently.
