/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Graham's Foundation, the global support organization for families facing the challenges of premature birth, is pleased to announce that Christopher Rand
, the Chief Executive Officer of AngelEye Health, a provider of virtual patient engagement solutions, has joined its board of directors.
"We started Graham's Foundation because, in spite of the incredible support we received during our twins' time in the NICU, we felt like we were barely surviving," says Nick Hall
, founder of Graham's Foundation. "Getting to hold our son, Graham, and hearing from our nurses that he knew he was being held, meant the world. That's when I knew we had to help make a difference for future parents of extremely early preemies. That's why I'm so glad to have Christopher on our board. He gets it, and his company gets it."
"Both AngelEye and Graham's Foundation share the common goal of giving families the support they need while their child is in the NICU," says Rand. "They are wholly committed to support, comfort, inform, and guide families who experience premature birth, and our technology enables their ability to accomplish their mission."
The AngelEye Health Virtual Care Platform enables parents, families, and care teams to stay connected when their newborns and children are in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). AngelEye offers live-stream video, real-time family chat, and HIPAA-compliant, one-way multimedia updates between parents and the care team.
A recent integration of InJoy Health Education's content enhances a hospital's ability to provide parents with material tailored for their baby's specific condition upon admission and up to 90 days post-discharge.
