SAFEBABY® MDM MODULE
Track and validate donor milk from Medolac Laboratories
As the importance of breastmilk becomes more apparent to the scientific community, donor milk banks have opened to fulfill the needs of many prematurely born children. Preemies are often born with underdeveloped gut tissues that can’t handle harsh artificial formulas or ingest large amounts of milk at one time. Every feed needs to consist of the best nutrition possible to promote healthy growth and healing. For mothers who cannot produce their own breastmilk or produce enough to satisfy their baby, Medolac Laboratories and Paragon provide a reliable solution.
WHAT IS THE MDM MODULE?
The SafeBaby® MDM Module is a stand-alone system that utilizes our patented donor milk tracking software to manage and validate milk from Medolac Laboratories. Our software has been designed to support strict traceability and safety compliance practices in human milk banks, tracking milk from donation, through pasteurization and delivery to a hospital, up until the time of feed. Because every lot is saved within the bank database, any milk unfit for use can be instantly flagged and quarantined, preventing misfeeds or contamination before it happens without risking the loss of unaffected product. Using SafeBaby® software, you can be confident that the breastmilk fed to your patients is fully validated.
In addition to providing feed efficiency and consistent hospital resupply, the SafeBaby® MDM module also acts as a quality assurance and patient safety system. Though Medolac’s donor milk is collected, inspected, pasteurized, and packaged in a manner that exceeds FDA guidelines for safety, there is always concern for product integrity when dealing with human donations. If the SafeBaby® MDM module detects a potential issue such as contamination or donor illness, the system will prevent milk from being delivered, no matter where it is in the supply chain. It will also immediately send out text or email alerts to the key personnel in your healthcare organization, so your team can address a problem quickly with minimal disruption. Finally, if the flagged product has already been sent to a NICU, SafeBaby®’s system prevents milk from being assigned to a patient until this hold is removed.

Paragon built and powers the MDM Module that provides Medolac with the lot traceability and data sharing they need to comply with food and medical safety standards. Our software tracks milk from the moment of donation to delivery at the NICU- and if the NICU also uses our system, the milk can be tracked until it is fed to a specific patient.
