ZeOmega Launches Maternity Management Solution for Reducing Adverse Obstetric Outcomes

Jiva for Maternity Management Helps Providers and Health Plans Identify At-risk Pregnancies, Supports Evidence-based Care Coordination for Better Clinical Outcomes

PLANO, Texas – Feb. 19, 2015 – ZeOmega Inc., a market leader in population health management solutions, today launched Jiva for Maternity Management, a packaged solution that gives hospitals and health plans the analytics, evidence-based care plans, and care coordination workflow needed to more quickly identify and better manage at-risk pregnancies. Expectant mothers will benefit from tighter coordination of key services and highly focused communication, education and monitoring as part of their maternity management program.

ZeOmega, with its long track record in providing intelligent care coordination solutions through its Jiva population health management platform, sees obstetrics as an area of immediate impact.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in 2012, premature births impacted about one out of every nine infants born in the U.S. The CDC also calculated that about 650 women die every year in the U.S. from complications of pregnancy or the delivery. Recent statistics show that a hospital with 3,000 births annually can expect as many as 19 events per year that result in adverse outcomes, including neurological complications leading to disability.

“Statistics show that 80 percent of adverse birth outcomes were attributable to communication problems. The emotional, clinical, financial and legal costs of adverse obstetric outcomes can be significant to everyone involved – the family, the provider and the payer – but applying Jiva’s analytics, workflow and evidence-based care plans to this particular point-of-care scenario can produce more positive outcomes,” said Nandini Rangaswamy, ZeOmega’s executive vice president and chief strategy officer. “With Jiva, we have in our hands a technology solution that can help hospitals and health plans proactively identify expectant moms who are at-risk, monitor them for and mitigate potential problems.”

Jiva for Maternity Management helps providers deliver optimal care to all their maternity patients by driving patient engagement ranging from healthy lifestyle choices and consistent medical care for mothers during pregnancy milestones, to addressing gaps in care related to maternity.

ZeOmega is offering a free ROI assessment conducted by a dedicated ZeOmega maternity management expert who can determine the measurable results that Jiva for Maternity Management can bring to any hospital or health plan, based on the organization’s specific data.
