University of Utah Hospital Announces Partnership with PeriGen for its Smart Fetal Monitoring Portfolio

October 17, 2014

The University of Utah Hospital announced an official partnership with premier fetal monitoring and surveillance systems specialist PeriGen, and purchased their PeriCALM® solution suite in replacement of the current electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) equipment. The Salt Lake City-based academic medical center plans to install the perinatal software in all of its 39 monitored spots this winter to optimize the clinical workflow as well as the quality of obstetrics care from labor to delivery.

Recognized for providing patented fetal surveillance systems, PeriGen has designed PeriCALM smart fetal monitoring technology with unique features and support tools that no other system can offer. The system is engineered with real-time pattern recognition and offers clinicians the most efficient solution for analyzing labor and fetal heart rate patterns at the same time.

This advanced perinatal system is also equipped with decision support technologies to optimize situational awareness on labor progress and fetal development. Some of its advantages include automated calculation of Montevideo units, pattern recognition based on the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) guidelines, long-term and detailed views of tracing displayed on screen, and evidenced-based analyses and statistical data at the bedside.

As the only perinatal pattern recognition software validated by the National Institutes for Health (NIH), physicians and students from the University of Utah noted that the PeriCALM innovation offers a great potential in empowering obstetric and prenatal care. “When we saw the built-in pattern recognition and the visual cues, we believed PeriGen's solution was worthy of serious consideration,” said Rita Aguilar, R.N., BSN, MBA, nursing director at University Hospital.

This cutting-edge PeriCALM software has set a new standard in meeting various healthcare providers and OB clinicians’ need for real-time fetal monitoring.
