CHTI Innovation Accelerator alumni Healing at Home and Heart Safe Motherhood, which leverage text messaging and remote monitoring, are among several Penn Medicine initiatives that promote better health outcomes and reduce disparities in care delivery for parents in the "fourth trimester."
The 2024 Innovation Accelerator Program winners are eyeSITE, which will deploy cameras with AI-enabled image analysis to prevent blindness among diabetic patients, and C3P3, which will use natural language processing to interpret cervical cancer screening reports faster and more accurately. Seven additional teams will receive other forms of support from CHTI.
Built using Way to Health, the bidirectional text message platform THEA facilitates home-based blood pressure monitoring and provides educational content to pregnant patients. THEA allowed triage nurses to attend to the small subset of patients (6 percent) with abnormal readings and enabled a new care model that reduced the number of care visits needed.
