Alana McGolrick is a Self-professed Fetal Monitoring Geek
In this episode, Joy chats with Alana McGolrick, Chief Nursing Officer at PeriGen, a perinatal decision support system. Their AI-powered early warning system gets applied to the laboring patient and helps read the fetal heart events, trends, uterine activity, progress in labor and also helps to graph and trend the maternal vital signs, which helps clinicians at the bedside with decision making related to the patient.
Her work is focused on reducing preventable maternal and newborn deaths using technology and AI to support labor and delivery activities. In this conversation, she shares how the PeriGen Vigillence product removes the bias that a doctor or nurse might have when looking at the mom or the fetal heartbeat by providing objective assessments.
