New Telemedicine Program Links Newborns in Kingston to Top Neonatologists in Valhalla

Posted By: Advancing Care

As seen in the July/August issue of Advancing Care

Through video telemedicine, a neonatologist at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital can be virtually present, on request, at the bedside to assess the newborn and work closely with the HealthAlliance care team on-site.

The neonatologist can offer clinical guidance during critical steps of newborn resuscitation, post-resuscitation care and other crucial support in the first minutes after birth to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Edmund LaGamma, MD, Chief of Newborn Medicine at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla (on-screen), communicates with Robin Stevens, MSN, RNC-OB, CDE, Director, Family Birth Place, and Megan McMullan, MD, at HealthAlliance Hospital in Kingston.

WMCHealth’s eNeonatology and resuscitation program also enables HealthAlliance to reduce the need to transfer newborns.
