Perinatal Leadership Forum Recap

PeriGen was incredibly honored to take part in this year’s Synova Perinatal Leadership Forum.  The four day event took place in San Antonio and  attracted 124 L&D leaders from across the US and Canada.  A total of 63 hospitals were represented, most of them Baby Friendly or On The Journey and many magnet facilities.

PeriGen’s Allan Kyburz and Darcy Dinneny spent their time attending sessions, meeting nurse leaders, and demonstrating PeriCALM obstetric analytics software. Their main focus was the new Export feature added this year to PeriCALM Patterns and PeriCALM CheckList.  This tools allows bedside labor nurses to automatically flow EFM data into annotations and the EHR without the need for time-consuming manual entry.

To highlight the feature, PeriGen sponsored a timed contest that awarded a Pebble Smart Watch to the attendee who could review and export data the fastest.  The Pebble Smart Watch, like PeriCALM, integrates with a variety of devices.

The winner was Kristin Salyards of Gibson Area Hospital & Health Services (Gibson City, IL).

PeriGen & WatchChild Combine Forces

Shaping the Future of Perinatal Care Together

A New Era in Obstetrics Begins

PeriGen’s acquisition of the WatchChild Fetal Monitoring System will result in access to the most comprehensive perinatal safety platform available.

Current users of both PeriGen’s PeriCALM and WatchChild system will continue to be fully supported and can, in the future, expect access to additional clinical, analytic, and expanded enterprise software management tools.

Steven Clark, M.D., professor of maternal fetal medicine at Baylor College commented on the new partnership: “I’ve had the pleasure of working independently on research projects with the PeriGen team and seeing how well their technology can augment nursing for the benefit of patients, clinicians, and research teams. As a current WatchChild customer, I am excited about this combination.”

The combined entity will be led by PeriGen chief executive officer Matthew Sappern. The management team will include senior executives from both companies, including the appointment of Brian Bishop, currently the general manager of WatchChild, as chief product officer.
