About NICU by the Numbers

NICU by the Numbers reports are made possible by VON members who voluntarily contribute data in a global effort to improve the care of high-risk newborns. The analysis of network data describes trends and highlights areas for local improvement. VON members can log in to Nightingale or review their reports to see their center- or group-specific data and benchmark against NICU by the Numbers reports.

These reports are published in the Your VON Newsletter. To sign up to receive the newsletter, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
