Teleneonatology, encompassing all telemedicine applications in neonatal medicine, is evolving with innovative applications for use in all aspects of neonatal care. In this chapter, we discuss the key components of and a framework for the development, implementation and evaluation of a program based on existing literature and our own program. We also review some important barriers to implementation and potential solutions. We hope that this review will serve as a guide for those seeking to develop and implement other new teleneonatology programs.
