NicView™ Camera System
Families of our neonatal patients can now have some peace of mind when they are unable to be at the baby’s bedside. With the NicView™ camera system, family members can view their infant in real-time, 24/7, through a secure online portal. The camera delivers a secure image stream for parents and family members to view their baby remotely. Cameras do not transmit sound and do not record video. No other users will have access to the baby’s images unless the parent provides them with login credentials. The NicView™ camera system can be securely accessed from anywhere there is an internet connection via a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. To participate in the NicView™ program, please speak with your neonatal nurse and complete the required consent form. For 24/7 technical support from the NicView™ team, please call 855-NIC-VIEW (855-642-8439).
