Video Monitoring Premature Babies


Orange has a really interesting video (with English subtitles) on a service they are trialling in a neonatal hospital. Essentially, what it is is a monitoring system that allows mothers of premature babies to stay in the same rooms as their children because the babies are constantly remotely monitored. This changes radically from the traditional organisation of premature born babies who used to all be kept in nurseries for easier monitoring, thuc cutting mother and babies off for long periods, sometimes weeks.

Of course this isn't fiber to the home, but it's a good illustration of the power of video monitoring for healthcare related applications and demonstrates how the elderly or patients in recovery could be sent home sooner without the quality of treatment being degraded.
