Glasgow Paediatric Intensive Care Unit are First to Introduce Secure Video Diaries for Parents

We are thrilled to announce that the first Paediatric Intensive Care Unit to use vCreate’s Secure Video Diary, has gone live. The vCreate app, which launched yesterday, will allow nursing staff in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow, to record videos of patients on an iPad and send them securely to parents’ smartphones and tablets.

Ellis (who is pictured above) and his mum Alexis, became the first family to trial the app. The videos of Ellis can be accessed by Alexis at anytime of day or night, and be shared with close family or friends. In time, they will form part of a Secure Video Diary that can be downloaded once Ellis has been discharged.

The system is free for parents and the unit, and is being funded by the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, who are already one of our fantastic sponsors for vCreate Neonatal.

Ben Moore, Founder of vCreate, said:

“This is an exciting time for vCreate. With the app now in use in many neonatal units across the UK, we are delighted to have our first PICU on board, so that the videos can begin to provide reassurance to parents like Alexis, for those times when they cannot be by their child’s side.

I'd also like to express my personal thanks to the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for their continued support of vCreate.”
