For the 20th anniversary of Freeman NICU in 2015, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, in conjunction with Walmart and Sam’s Club, donated Angel Eye® NICU Camera System, a secure web-based camera system that enables parents to remotely see their child via a live feed. A camera mounted to the baby’s bed provides parents 24-hour access to their child, helping ease the pain of separation if parents must return to work or leave the hospital.
Angel Eye was designed to encourage bonding between parent and child, incorporating a one-way, low-decibel audio system, so parents can talk to the child. The system is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act because it does not store any patient information or record the video stream. Parents can allow access to as many as 20 loved ones who wish to see their baby. Once an infant is discharged, all accounts associated with the infant are removed from the system.
