Neonatal Nutrition Ecosystem

Student: Michelle Feely, 2019-2020

Sponsor: Baxter Healthcare, Deerfield, IL

My capstone project will identify ways to support the assessment and prescription process within Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs). There is a need for data integration to aggregate and analyze various clinical and technological sources of neonate patient data along with individual nutritional needs. The envisioned solution is an integrated software platform that will operate within the NICU to aid in workflow management for neonatologists, nurses and pharmacists. The goal is a central hub of real-time patient data that will ultimately expedite proper nutrition to neonates.
