Keriton Kare Selected by Connecticut Children's to Improve Feeding Management in Its NICU and PICU
"Connecticut Children's has partnered with Keriton to ensure accuracy and efficiency into our feeding management operations, which is critical to maintaining the highest standards of care as our organization grows and matures," said Marge Julian, R.N., M.S.N., Nursing Director of Connecticut Children's NICU network.
"Keriton's cloud-based platform is sufficiently agile to scale across Connecticut Children's campuses, to support patient-centered care in the Neonatal and Pediatric ICUs as well as our Medical and Surgical Inpatient Units," added Jung Park, Connecticut Children's Interim Chief Information Officer.
Connecticut Children's lactation team uses Keriton's pumping analytics, chat and photo-sharing to help moms maximize their milk supply. Technicians and nutritionists use Keriton's review, sorting, recipe calculators, and feed order assignments to optimize milk and formula inventories. ICU nurses use Keriton to ensure baby-to-bottle matches and feed order-to-fortification matches.
Among the most important priorities for Connecticut Children's is maintaining a healthy and safe environment for patients and staff during the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As visitation is restricted and changes in practices are going into effect, Keriton keeps families connected to care teams with real-time, HIPAA-compliant push notifications, 2-way chat and photos.
"Keriton is thrilled to partner with a high-reliability organization like Connecticut Children's that is committed to quality and safety across the continuum of feeding management,"
Keriton Kare connects nurses, lactation consultants, nutritionists, technicians, and patient families.
