CHS Leads First Natus Medical NICVIEW Install in Canada

Tuesday August 1, 2017

CHS Leads First Natus Medical NICVIEW Install in Canada In August 2017, CHS had our first NICVIEW web camera installation at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon.

At CHS, we aim to develop and deliver innovative products and solutions for and with our customers and suppliers.


The NICVIEW Web Camera is an innovative small camera system placed at designated bed spaces in the NICU that allows parents, family and friends to view their infant in real-time, 24/7, through a secure online portal. This service helps families develop a bond with their preemie or hospitalized infant even when they can’t physically be in the NICU.


Our partnership with Natus Medical has allowed us to bring new innovation and technology to the marketplace. With an increased focus on Family Integrated Care this simple device will allow parents to feel more involved in their neonate’s care, provides reassurance, and strengthens trusting relationships between parents and their child’s caregivers. This allows healthcare professionals to focus on the job of caring for their NICU patients. The NICVIEW cameras provide a value-added service for parents and relatives, increasing patient satisfaction.


The first installation occurred at Royal University Hospital on July 26, 2017 and consisted of a 10-camera placement. The staff and family members were extremely excited to access this technology.


The first neonate who received access had spent over 100 days in the NICU. The extended family of this baby lived overseas and now, with the NICVIEW, had video access via any device that had an internet connection. With this technology they could now view the neonate and feel connected both to the baby and the family. Royal University Hospital was able to secure funds for the purchase of the cameras through their foundation. They also felt it was necessary to communicate how important these cameras were to achieving Family Integrated Care in their NICU, therefore they have shared their story through a CTV news outlet in Saskatoon.
