Dartmouth-Hitchcock, New Hampshire hospital partner to expand neonatal telemedicine

Lebanon, N.H.-based Dartmouth-Hitchcock will extend its telemedicine services to provide critical care neonatal services to nonprofit, community hospital Littleton (N.H.) Regional Healthcare patients.

Through the partnership, a Dartmouth-Hitchcock neonatologist will use telemedicine technology to virtually connect with Littleton Regional Healthcare providers and offer neonatal care and support for various diagnoses.

Tele-ICN allows Dartmouth-Hitchcock to perform 24/7, real-time assessments and treatment recommendations and has been shown to reduce hospital transfers, according to a news release emailed to Becker's Hospital Review.
