BabySteps® Cloud streamlines crucial data that supports patient care, allowing physicians to spend more time where they're needed most — with patients.
In 2004, Pediatrix® introduced the first iteration of the BabySteps application, which revolutionized neonatal documentation. When Pediatrix upgraded BabySteps® to BabySteps® Cloud, the goal was to create an application that would be easy to implement, accessible from anywhere 24/7 and eliminate the need for dedicated hardware or server space.
BabySteps Cloud is an improved clinical documentation tool explicitly designed for neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients that enable NICU teams nationwide to quickly and easily capture specific granular data at the point of care. BabySteps Cloud was built with neonatal intensive care providers in mind. The user interface is intuitive to the NICU patient population, allowing for more effective and efficient documentation so clinicians can spend more time at the bedside and less time at the computer.
BabySteps Cloud feeds one of the world's largest repositories of neonatology data. The Pediatrix Clinical Data Warehouse provides frontline health care professionals in the NICU with relevant clinical metrics and outcome data to drive research and quality improvement. This allows NICU improvement teams to benchmark their performance internally and against a large national dataset. This neonatology-specific dataset creates the foundation for robust performance work to serve a facility's patients and families. This data is the foundation of more than 150 peer-reviewed publications and allows us to make meaningful observations that improve the care we provide.

The Clinical Data Warehouse (CDW) is a crucial component of BabySteps Cloud. When information is entered into the BabySteps Cloud application, it is stored in our CDW, one of the most comprehensive neonatal outcomes databases in the world.
Storage in the CDW allows the data to be de-identified prior to use in research, benchmarking of outcomes, enhancing clinical decision-making and promoting high-quality clinical practices at the bedside. With this extensive bank of information, health care providers can compare data from their practice to data from other practices at a local, state, regional and national level. This neonatology-specific dataset creates the foundation for robust performance work to best serve patients and families.
