Abstract Baby CareLink is a multifaceted telemedicine application designed to provide individualized information and support to families of Very Low Birth Weight infants. We believe that this innovative use of WWW and telemedicine technologies will improve family satisfaction and clinical care. In conjunction with improvements in family involvement, discharge planning, education, and follow-up enabled by other CareLink components, this system may allow infants to transition home even earlier in their hospital stay and thereby provide a clear cost savings. This paper discusses the CareLink architecture and lessons learned in implementing a telemedicine link with families at home from an in-hospital clinical unit.
