We congratulate Dr.Narmadha Kuppuswamy for receiving 2018 Catalyst Awards (Advancing Human Wellness Through IT) in Boston with HP Inc. The honorary award was awarded for developing a program and clinical protocols for reducing maternal mortality rate. Genix as a technology partner is happy to be a part of this great initiative by joining hands with Dr.Narmadha in developing this WONDER ful project.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), every day around the world about 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. That figure is staggering at more than 300,000 fatalities per year. Ninety-nine percent of these avoidable deaths occur where resources are scarce and access to healthcare is limited. Together, Genix and the WONDER have developed tools and clinical protocols for reducing maternal mortality.
These technology-centric tools enable persistent remote monitoring, heightening awareness of potentially life-threatening conditions. Such technology-enabled strategies for the reduction of maternal mortality and morbidity are integral to reducing global disparities in maternal health outcomes. The initiative provides clinical care models for the delivery of services to remote populations. In this way, the program increases access to healthcare, and enables visibility to often silent risk factors that may threaten the lives of expectant mothers.
