The global spread of Omicron has exposed pregnant women or recently pregnant women to an increased risk for severe illness with Covid-19. According to a study by Frontier, pregnant women have a modified immune and respiratory system, making them more susceptible to severe symptoms such as pneumonia and marked hypoxia, especially at the end of the gestation period.
In light of that, iMedic™ has developed a Home Monitoring Program in Malaysia for pregnant women who tested positive for Covid-19. Armoured with experience, the iMedic™ was appointed by Singapore’s Ministry of Health to be one of the official partners for the country’s Enhanced Home Recovery Program, for pregnant women who are Covid-19 positive.
With the surge of positive cases, hospitals are overwhelmed with infected patients, thus lacking the capacity to treat the patients efficiently. Consequently, digital health platforms have become the preferred treatment plan for patients. Backed by certified doctors around the globe, iMedic™ is widely used for remote monitoring in chronic disease patients, and online consultations for simple acute patients.
In the Home Recovery Program, all patients will have the freedom to choose their preferred healthcare provider. Apart from the flexibility to make appointments, the iMedic™ platform is designed to monitor patients effectively. With the help of Smart Medical Devices (IoMT) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR), patients are able to auto-upload their vital signs for doctors to review. Above all else, the iMedic™ app is equipped with smart alerts to urge immediate medical attention. That said, you can rest assured knowing iMedic™ will be there for you.
