SYSTEM FEATURES


The SafeBaby® System specifications offers the following features…..

Can SafeBaby® track the volume of stored or fed milk?

Yes.  The SafeBaby® Solution has the capability to track volume in mls from the moment the expressed, donor, or formula milk is received and scanned into our system. SafeBaby® will not only track and record the initial inventory information, but will trace the actual volume of milk a patient consumes during each feed. However, the SafeBaby® database does not require that a medical center track volume- the choice is up to you.

Our hospital isn’t interested in tracking the expiration and inventory of our expressed breast milk.  Can we still use your system?

Certainly. One of the best features of the SafeBaby® system is its ability to fit your existing facility workflows. Our database is customizable to nearly any hospital or donor bank process- so there is no need to disrupt the methods you use to treat your patients. SafeBaby® is designed to be as robust or as uncomplicated as your NICU or milk bank requires. If simple functionality is all that you need, SafeBaby® can validate a feed in as little as three easy scans.

Does the SafeBaby® system track donor milk as well?

Yes. Our solution can be configured to accept, identify, store, and track donated breast milk by inputting the donor bank or lot number data. SafeBaby® can also assign donor milk to a specific child.

Does SafeBaby® print an additive label after a bottle or syringe is fortified?

Yes. This feature can be turned off if desired.

Does SafeBaby® track formula?

Absolutely.  Formula can be added and tracked just like donor milk.

Does your system track thawed and fortified EMB expiration parameters?

Yes, SafeBaby® offers built-in tracking options for these data points as well.

BASIC USE OF SOFTWARE


Frequently asked questions about our SafeBaby® Software…..

Why does SafeBaby® use the mother as a primary contact when tracking expressed breast milk?

SafeBaby® associates EBM with the mother, because it allows the EBM to be more easily and securely used between multiple siblings. Once the milk is fortified or a syringe is filled, SafeBaby® tracks the milk against the individual child’s information.

Does SafeBaby® require the use of the “SafeBabyBMTTM patient ID barcode” for identification purposes?

No. Our solution can use the patient’s account number or MRN barcode on the existing ID label to validate the baby’s identity.

Can your system be used with our existing hardware?

Yes. The SafeBaby® application can be loaded onto laptops, COW’s, WOW’s, and viewed on a monitor. It can also be loaded on existing handhelds as long as they run on Windows Mobile 5.0 OS or greater.
