Insight through


Our results are life changing. Infants supported with NASCEND’s Continuum of Care are less likely to be admitted to the NICU, are treated with comfort over medication, and spend less time in the hospital.

Length of stay for infants requiring medication treatment was decreased from 45 to 12 days due to a significant reduction in the length of treatment from 39 to 7 days.

Better assessments and focusing on comfort first led to a reduction in the number of infants requiring opiate medication.



NASCEND’s Continuum of Care significantly reduces the cost of care for substance exposed infants. Decreasing the number of infants admitted to the NICU and the length of hospital stay for those treated resulted in a per patient savings of nearly $40,000.
