What We Do
Improve Feeding Skills
The hospital discharge of premature infants in neonatal care units is often delayed due to their inability to feed by mouth safely and competently.1
As a leader in feeding technology products and applications, Innara Health has developed the NTrainer System. The NTrainer NNS therapeutic stimulation has been shown to enhance NNS and nutritive feeding ability.2
Increase Parent Engagement
As a NICU parent, you want to participate in your baby's care and crave honest, timely, and comprehensive information regarding your baby's health and potential outcomes.3
The NTrainer therapy helps promote feeding outcomes and enables infants to get home sooner. The NTrainer assessment helps mom's and dad's understand their infant's feeding readiness progress and improves family-centered care communication.
Impact Economic Benefits
NICU cost of care impacts payers and providers, sometimes in different ways.
Everyone agrees that improving NICU efficiency, care, and cost is a major concern for healthcare providers and payers. Innara Health is an important partner that can help NICU administrators achieve these goals while improving the quality and safety of feeding care and outcomes. Our NTrainer System compliments your NICU ROI goals and can help with parent satisfaction scores.
