409 – Connected maternity care – the future is here. Anoushka Gungadin, HeraMED
In this episode of Talking Health Tech, host Peter Birch is joined by Anoushka Gungadin from HeraMED to discuss the revolutionising of maternity care through digitalisation. Anoushka shares insights into the current challenges and limitations in maternity care and the role of technology in enhancing care for pregnant women. They cover the mum-centric approach to care, the features of HeraMED’s solution, integration with healthcare providers, and the broader impact on healthcare systems.
– The traditional model of maternity care has remained largely unchanged for about 100 years, with care being centred around hospitals and care providers. HeraMED’s solution aims to revolutionise maternity care by delivering a mum-centric approach, empowering women with continuous and convenient care while maintaining the same level of medical grade safety and accuracy.
– The solution consists of a Heracare app that integrates different care plans, real-time feedback, and education from renowned sources like the Mayo Clinic. It also allows for the remote monitoring of various pregnancy-related parameters such as blood pressure, glucose levels, and foetal heart rate, facilitating early intervention and reducing the need for frequent in-person visits.
– The implementation of digital technologies in maternity care has the potential to address accessibility and equity issues, making high-quality care available to women in remote, rural, and underserved areas. Furthermore, collaboration and ecosystem buy-in are essential for the successful integration of such solutions into healthcare settings and for driving policy changes.
