Children's Minnesota expands at-home neonatal monitoring program to 3 hospitals

Children's Minnesota has expanded its home-based app program, which remotely monitors newborns at home, to three hospitals. 

The program — dubbed Children's in Home App-Based Monitoring Program, or CHAMP — has been implemented at the hospital's Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses and at Coon Rapids, Minn.-based Mercy Hospital, according to a July 6 press release. 

The program allows a newborn's parents to use a specialized app via their smartphone or tablet to input their baby's vitals daily. This data is then reviewed remotely by their care team, who can keep close tabs on newborns who have a nasogastric feeding tube present at the time of discharge. 

"CHAMP is helping more families enjoy time together under their own roof while cutting-edge technology keeps their care team close-by," said Cristina Miller, MD, medical director of the NICU follow-up clinic at Children's Minnesota and founder and director of CHAMP.
