BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) February 20, 2019
Overlake Medical Center and Wildflower Health announced today a digital partnership to improve pre-natal and maternal care for mothers and their families in the Puget Sound area. The partnership includes a free, mobile app called, O-Baby, which will offer expecting mothers a personalized pregnancy experience from pre-natal planning through the critical first 1,000 days postpartum, providing a seamless transition into parenthood.
The O-Baby app powered by Wildflower’s digital platform simplifies healthcare and connects families to the right clinical and local support at the right times, driving interventions with high-risk pregnancies. This ensures that every individual receives the most appropriate level of care, decision support for a variety of scenarios, and adherence and compliance with care plans, appointments, vaccinations and prevention.
“Your baby’s birth is a personal, life-changing journey”, said Marianne Pizzitola, Director of Overlake’s Childbirth Center. “The O-Baby app will allow us to provide the trustworthy information and support that they expect from Overlake, in a digital format that works with their busy lives, and empowers them to be proactive in making their own health decisions.”
The O-Baby app will be available to the general public in April, 2019. The partnership with Wildflower Health demonstrates Overlake’s ongoing commitment to invest in leading-edge technology that supports a patient-focused approach to care.
“Wildflower Health was born out of the need for direct connections to healthcare resources for mom during her pregnancy and beyond,” said Leah Sparks, Wildflower Health Founder and CEO. “We look forward to working with Overlake to deliver their quality, compassionate care to mothers in this convenient, patient-centered tool.”
Key features of the O-Baby app include:
- Personalized content with daily and weekly milestones based on expected due date, tracking baby’s development and common pregnancy symptoms.
- Direct connection to Overlake’s suite of maternity services, including prenatal and childbirth classes, choosing a healthcare provider, virtual tours of Overlake’s Childbirth Center, and postpartum support from infant nutrition to scheduling lactation consultations.
- Access to individualized, trusted health and lifestyle information including nutritional advice, safe car seat usage, postpartum exercise instruction, and advice for involving one’s partner in parenthood journey.
- Seamlessly transitions support of families from pregnancy to parenthood for children from birth to 2 years old, tracking developmental milestones and managing important activities such as scheduling recommended well-child checks.
