PreeMe+You Hands On App
We carefully craft social and mobile technologies to jumpstart and foster communication and interactions that are essential for premature infant health and development – never to replace them.
Preeme+You empowers families to take their babies home feeling prepared, cared for, and without delay. We help you tap into how your medical team is caring for your baby.
NICU medicine is complex, with many shifting clinical markers. In addition, around the clock NICU care means there are many medical caretakers on your baby’s team. Our mobile tool is a partner to parents and medical care teams—deconstructing and communicating NICU medical pathways and illness severity. Everyone is now on the same page in real time. We harmonize and simplify communication to the often very complicated question, “How is my baby doing today? PreeMe+You’s Hands On app provides knowledge for each preemie’s unique personal health status and journey.
Continuous orienting of yourself according to your baby’s unique and changing maturation trajectory helps guide expectations and holistically plans for your baby’s NICU journey home.
You learn how your medical team is taking care of your baby and using NICU medicine to help your baby go home faster. PreeMe+You harmonizes communication between parents and rotating NICU teams. This way, everyone is on the same page.
This mobile application is unique because it offers NICU parents a self-guided tool for locating their baby’s medical pathway and illness severity.
A Partner for Medical Teams
Putting yourself in the shoes of your medical team, you are both caring for the preemie and their families. When you update parents on their baby’s medical condition, your are not only communicating the baby’s illness severity, but you are also making sure that parents’ interpretation of what you are communicating is actually what you intend to communicate. At the same time, you also want to make sure that parents are emotionally cared for. All the while, you only have 15 minutes before you have to rush back and take care of another preemie and talk to another worried family.
Hands On helps guide parents and prepares them for a deeper and more nuanced conversation. By either working through yes and no operative clinical questions with families together or having families already on the same page, medical teams can spend time with families at the bedside in the way they need. Time is precious in the NICU, and Hands On empowers medical teams to go deeper in their explanations and care, minimizing “lost in translation.”
