WASHINGTON DC, DC, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2023/ -- The United States has the highest Maternal mortality rate among developed countries with 1 in 5 pregnant mothers having some complications. The average cost per pregnancy varies between $8,000 to over $100,000 when complications set in. Gestational Diabetes, pre-eclampsia and preterm births are some of these complications. Effectively Identifying at-risk patients and monitoring them remotely can significantly reduce complications and costs.

Materno, is a platform that has been created with a view to reducing inequities in care and reducing complications from common complications. Materno allows pregnant mothers to stay in touch with their clinical team and help improve maternity care.

From his work as a founder for other healthcare startups and also his work as a clinician, Dr Krishnan also has a balanced understanding of what patients really need. Combining this knowledge with his previous clinical experiences, Sujith began designing Materno for the US market. The maternity clinical spend in the US is estimated to be around $160B per year and the market of digital solutions in maternity is estimated to grow to around $11B by 2030.

Materno, is a digital maternity platform that combines the technology elements of AI, predictive analytics and automation, clinical evidence-based care plans and protocols along with a care manager led patient engagement, remote monitoring, and telehealth service.
