Pratt Regional Medical Center adds an extra layer of patient safety to their family birthing suites with the PeriCALM Fetal Surveillance Solution

November 10th 2016

Pratt Regional Medical Center announced today that they have implemented PeriGen’s PeriCALM® fetal surveillance solution for their family birthing suites. The PeriCALM electronic fetal surveillance software includes PeriCALM Patterns, the only fetal surveillance solution that is both cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and validated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) based on the findings of an extensive, independent study that determined that an analysis of fetal strip tracings performed manually by top NIH experts matched the findings from PeriCALM Patterns™ automated, real -time analysis more than 97 percent of the time.

Brenda Blankenship RN, Family Birthing Suites manager states, “We are very excited to begin using our new fetal monitoring system. We have a group of very experienced nurses working in the Family Birth Suites, the total years of OB experience equal 112 years, plus many more years in nursing general. The new system through PeriGen not only has advanced fetal monitoring but also has clinical decision support software which increases patient safety and reduces risk. We are very grateful to the foundation for the gift of this system which will aid the nurse in providing simply the best and safest care possible to our mothers and babies.”

"The Pratt Health Foundation learned of the opportunity to upgrade a system for the Birthing Suites which would provide better service for our new families and some efficiencies for the PRMC staff. The generous matching gift in memory of Arlene Withers and a great response by our donors enabled the Foundation to respond to this needed acquisition," explains DeWayne Bryan of the Pratt Health Foundation.

PeriCALM modules provides comprehensive, patented, FDA-cleared clinical decision support and fetal monitoring tools, including PeriCALM Patterns™. This software uses patented algorithms to help clinicians interpret fetal heart rate patterns and provides a consistent, objective and standardized assessment of the data as a basis for collaborative care at the bedside. The tool has been cited as invaluable in facilitating communication among nurses, residents and physicians.

“The unique capabilities of the PeriCALM solution will enable Pratt Regional Medical Center to fulfill its commitment to provide exceptional, safe patient care that will ultimately lead to better health outcomes for mothers and medically fragile newborns,” said PeriGen CEO Matthew Sappern. “We’re proud to help hospitals such as Pratt Regional to transform their Family Birthing Suites with the most advanced real-time surveillance and alerting tools, analytics, and clinical documentation solutions that will work together to reduce risk throughout the birthing experience.”

PeriGen offers innovative perinatal software solutions that incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) features to enhance clinical efficiency and standardization of care during childbirth. Led by skilled OB practitioners and IT visionaries, PeriGen has created the PeriCALM platform to provides consistent analysis and efficient display of complex data in real-time to promote better human recognition and communication about impending problems during labor. With PeriCALM clinicians can spend more time on direct patient care and less time on manual calculations and data manipulation.
