Womenâ€™s Health Newsletter Prematurity Awareness
Content Releases (continued) :
November is Prematurity Awareness month and November 17th marks World Prematurity Day. AWHONN is encouraging everyone to take the pledge to wait for labor to start on its own and encourage pregnant women do the same when all is healthy and well. The nurses of AWHONN remind everyone not to rush their baby; give her at least 40 weeks of pregnancy. Take the pledge here: http://www.causes.com/causes/799996awhonn/actions/1698908
For more information on prematurity awareness visit the March of Dimes website: http://www.marchofdimes.com

FetaLink+ 510(k) Clearance: We are very excited to announce the 510(k) clearance of FetaLink+. We recognize that OBGYN providers are constantly on the go and need immediate access to key maternal and fetal information from any location. FetaLink+ is a native application for use on iPads and iPhones. It will allow OB providers visibility to what’s going on within the hospital by displaying maternal and fetal monitoring data and additional clinical data such as EDD, EGA, cervical exam status and annotations -- just to name a few.

Vermont Oxford Network: Our VON project is currently in development and is slated to be released early 2013. This functionality will allow clinicians a single source to document, review, and submit patient data electronically to the Vermont Oxford Network. It will be comprised of a VON Patient Census view and a Single Patient view resembling what is seen here. We are working with solution partners to create an optimal experience.
