Improving Value in Healthcare Series: APP's Technology - 29 April 2021 at 12:30pm (AEST)

 

The focus of this web conference is on the Eve App, which is used by women during pregnancy at Northern Health. 

Many women use Google and commercially available applications, or ask on forums when they are seeking information. However, this can often result in misinformation.

The Eve App is a mobile application designed to enhance the pregnancy and parenting experience for mums in the north by providing them with access to evidence based information relating to pregnancy, birthing and early parenting.

“Unlike other pregnancy apps, women are able to access their own pregnancy information within the application, ask questions to a midwife, have access to a moderated forum, and be able to input medical data like blood sugar levels and blood pressure readings for their doctor to see.”

When women book in to have their baby at Northern Health, they will receive an SMS inviting them to download the application. This will be linked to their specific booking and their own medical record and will have bank-level encryption to ensure privacy is maintained. Women will receive weekly updates about how their body and baby is growing and have new articles that are relevant to their stage of pregnancy/parenting. They can also search for specific articles or topics that they are interested in.

About the presenters:

Nicole Carlon is the Director of Operations Women’s and Children’s Services at Northern Health.
