Cole Memorial To Participate In Breastfeeding Support Study

 

 

Cole Memorial Hospital will partner with several organizations to bring high-tech breastfeeding support services to rural patients.

The study launched in late September of this year through Pacify Health, Inc., “the leading mobile health platform for new mothers and newborns.” Additional partners include the RAND Corporation, University of Pittsburgh and the Health Resources and Services Administration.

“Moms get a lot of support while they’re in the hospital, but they go home and that support evaporates,” says Melanie Silverman, chief clinical officer at Pacify. “Pacify fills that gap by streaming experts directly into the home during those first few critical days and weeks after birth.”
