The University of Virginia's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit published studies showing that fortification of breast milk with human milk-based fortifiers could lead to reduced rates of a variety of conditions and shorter NICU stays. Session speakers will present the literature, share our multidisciplinary action plan and implementation, and their clinical outcomes, which included reduced length of stay, fewer parenteral nutrition and central line days, reduced ventilator days, and an elimination of surgical necrotizing enterocolitis. They will also review the neutralized cost of product from captured charges and reimbursements.
