Latest fundraising effort to strengthen Emagine’s powerful suite of maternal health tools
TUCSON, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Emagine Solutions Technology has been awarded $1 million from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to conduct research and development (R&D) work on further developing proprietary AI models as well as integrating their systems with the biggest Electronic Health Record (EHR) system in the nation, making The Journey Pregnancy App a more robust tool for patients and medical professionals.
Emagine addresses the maternal health crisis with remote patient monitoring technology designed to improve pregnancy care. Their continuing effort to increase access to vital maternal health tools comes amid reports that the U.S. has the highest maternal mortality in the developed world. Meanwhile, maternal health disparities are actually increasing, particularly within communities of color, who face systemic inequalities when interacting with the healthcare system.
“The US maternal health crisis is felt by every community in our country,” says Emagine Solutions Technology Co-founder and CEO Courtney Williams. “The National Science Foundation provides vital funding, policy and support that allows us to develop much-needed solutions, capture the attention of the nation and drive real change.”
