LVHN BabyCam

babycamLehigh Valley Health Network’s BabyCam is an amazing service that offers the most comforting image a worried parent could ask for – a live video image of their baby in the neonatal intensive care unit. NICU nurse Jane Nemeth, BSN, and a NICU family talk about the impact of the BabyCam service that’s available to families of NICU patients any time of the day or night.

In December 2012, LVHN launched a program called BabyCam in the Lehigh Valley Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The BabyCam service allows parents and other parent-approved individuals (such as family members) to view the baby through a secure internet connection. 

A web camera is securely placed above the infant’s bassinette and provides family members a bird’s-eye view of the baby at any time of day. As family members learn care routines, they can enjoy seeing the baby and feel more connected even when they are unable to be physically present. 

In the first seven weeks the program went online, 28 families used the program with 87 active users. During that time, the BabyCam application was accessed by parents and approved individuals a total of 6,010 times.

How BabyCam has grown:

  • During the 2016 calendar year, BabyCam was accessed 45,329 times by 576 families/1,030 users. Those who used BabyCam came from 42 states and the District of Columbia, as well as 25 countries throughout the world.
  • The BabyCam service is now available on all 44 beds in the NICU.
