SAN FRANCISCO – Wildflower Health, a mobile health software company, has launched enhanced capabilities to support new parents during the first 1,000 days. Wildflower’s Family Health platform can now support parents as they manage the health needs of their newborns and their entire family during early childhood. “A series of small decisions, missed opportunities and gaps in knowledge can undermine the health and wellbeing of babies and toddlers for a lifetime,” said Leah Sparks, founder and CEO of Wildflower, in a statement. “We’ve proven the power of helping new moms and their partners navigate healthier pregnancies using mobile technologies, and we see the same potential for helping families take a healthier path from the moment a child is born.” In the update, the new health view focuses on early childhood development and parental health. Features include: access to information on topics for young children, such as nutrition and sleep; the ability to track developmental milestones and activities like scheduling recommended well-child checks; and information on challenges facing new parents, including screening for postpartum depression. The enhanced platform also enables digitization of user-entered data that is collected through in-app tools and surveys, which can be used to risk stratify individuals and personalize care for those with emerging challenges. Wildflower’s technology release follows the company’s recent acquisition of the Circle Women’s Health Platform, incubated by Providence St. Joseph Health.
