A 15-month, peer-reviewed pilot study
Expectant mothers were recruited from five primary care clinics in rural Nebraska for a 15-month pilot feasibility study. Participants were in their first or second trimester of pregnancy and were divided into two groups for a quasi-experimental design.
The intervention group received usual medical care plus weekly health content via mobile device using Personal Concierge™. Additionally, they received personal outreach from the Community Health Worker (CHW) who phoned participants to address issues regarding:
- Social services
- Medication access
- Prenatal education
- Personal health
The control group received usual medical care, plus prenatal information packets.
