WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--eClinicalWorks®, a leader in healthcare IT solutions, announced today the success patients and providers have experienced with the company’s Health & Online Wellness (healow™) Mom mobile app, which helps expectant mothers track their health throughout their pregnancy. Providers have reported an improvement in communication and engagement after recommending healow™ Mom to their patients. The app also helps practices to reduce no-show appointments, keep schedules full and enhance office workflow.
“The app is especially helpful to first time mothers, as it gives them access to health data which outlines what to expect during their pregnancy from week to week,” said Audrey A. Tracey, MD of Family Medical and Maternity Care, P.C. “As a provider, I like that healow Mom allows my patients to manage the many critical components of pregnancy, including managing their appointments, viewing their labs and health records, reading pregnancy related educational material and communicating with our office through messaging.”
The healow Mom users have access to the healow app health tracker which is integrated with the eClinicalWorks electronic health record (EHR) to give their providers up-to-date information on blood pressure, glucose levels and more. This integration also enables patients to view their records, lab results and schedule future appointments. An education feature keeps mothers-to-be informed on what to expect throughout their pregnancy with weekly information specific to what trimester they are in. Patients can take notes in the journal feature for upcoming appointments and keep a pregnancy profile to compare previous pregnancies. Additional features include a kick-counter, contraction timer and the ability to share labor and birth announcements with friends and family.
“healow Mom is a great way for expecting mothers and their providers to stay engaged in every phase of the pregnancy,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Patients experiencing their first pregnancy feel reassured in what to expect and have direct access to their health records and provider. Additionally, providers have an easy and transparent access to their patients’ progress.”
