For health care systems and payers focused on improving maternal outcomes and health equity, Vasowatch offers a novel Labor and Delivery technology that supports continuous monitoring of a mother's risk for postpartum hemorrhage, the leading cause of maternal death and complications. Unlike expert-based risk assessments administered upon admission, we offer four times improved sensitivity and real time vigilance during this vulnerable time.
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of death in labor & delivery
Maternal mortality in the US is unacceptably high, the worst in the developed world at an average of 33 deaths per 100K births and rising. Health inequities are growing; black mothers die at 3.5 times the rate as white mothers; Native American/Alaskan Indian mothers at 2.5 times. Hispanic maternal mortality rates have jumped 54% in a year.
“PPH is an important condition to address and current risk assessment tools are not addressing it adequately.”
