The Journey to Become More Data-Driven: How ICU Baby learned to use data more effectively through our cohort model
It is very stressful under the best of circumstances for a family to have a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). But, for families with limited financial resources, having a baby in the NICU presents many logistical challenges.From the cost of transportation from their home to the hospital day-after-day, to the additional financial hardship of childcare for siblings or unpaid maternity leave, families from low income communities are faced with enormous stress and, in some cases, obstacles to be with their baby.
ICU baby was founded to ensure that no baby in the NICU would go unvisited because of financial or emotional hardship. The organization provides a range of services to NICU families, including meals, essential NICU supplies, transportation assistance, information and resources, and emotional support to ensure families visit their babies in the NICU and participate in their direct care.
