Specialist insurer Beazley is partnering with PeriGen, a developer of artificial intelligence-driven systems for obstetrics.
The agreement will provide Beazley’s US healthcare clients with an early warning system for labor and delivery.
PeriWatch Vigilance works alongside any existing electronic fetal monitor and assess long-term trends in fetal heart rate, contractions, maternal vitals and labor progress.
“Beazley is committed to providing innovative solutions to aid in the continuous improvement of outcomes in obstetrics and all of patient care,” said Valentina Minetti, Beazley’s US hospitals focus group leader.
“Offering our clients access to this AI platform aims to help them to understand patients’ conditions and when greater intervention is needed, and ultimately to reduce preventable risks associated with childbirth.”
“There is strong alignment between PeriGen’s mission to reduce adverse events in childbirth and the interests of Beazley providers and patients,” said PeriGen Chief Executive Officer Matthew Sappern.
“We are thrilled to work with an equally committed and innovative partner to protect against avoidable problems in childbirth.”
