SimpliFed, providing support and resources to pregnant moms and parents with newborns, announces collaboration with VidyoHealth, a Telehealth video conferencing provider, to offer virtual consultations to their patients. Enriching people’s lives, VidyoHealth provides flexible and easy solutions, delivering the reliability, interoperability, and scalability needed for today’s healthcare environment.
The transition from pregnancy to motherhood can be difficult for new parents to navigate on multiple levels. While facing physical and mental distress from giving birth, parents must also adapt to learning how to care for their new baby and learning what feeding methods work for their family. With so much on their plate, taking the time and energy to attend check-ups and doctor’s appointments can commonly be a burden many new parents do not need to deal with. Thanks to advances in virtual conferencing technology, Vidyo and SimpliFed can help meet parents where they are, with the necessary resources starting during pregnancy to make a plan for feeding their baby based on their goals. Also, health plans are required to cover baby feeding services under the Affordable Care Act. SimpliFed partners with health plans to democratize access to this support for pregnant and postpartum families.
To better serve new parents and their newborns, SimpliFed provides virtual care surrounding baby feeding starting during pregnancy and also partners with OBGYN, family medicine, and pediatric clinics that need a virtual health strategy that enables quality virtual care surrounding baby feeding at any point along a patient’s journey. SimpliFed extends Vidyo’s capabilities allowing care teams to provide innovative services, and processes within an integrated system to enable timely, cost-effective, quality care that engages patients as active, informed participants in their own health.
