Ochsner Connected MOM

Keeping your pregnancy on the right track has never been easier

Ochsner Connected MOM (Connected Maternity Online Monitoring) is a way to help expecting moms actively manage their pregnancy between visits to their LWH obstetrician, with minimal disruption to their daily lives.

 

Connected care from the comfort of home

If enrolled in the program by your LWH physician, you will receive a digital tools kit that includes a wireless scale and wireless blood pressure cuff that connect to your smartphone and Epic electronic health record. 

 

From the comfort of your home or office setting, you will be asked to use the tools to submit weekly weights and blood pressure readings. Because your digital tools communicate directly with your health record, your LWH physician will be able to keep a close eye on how your pregnancy is progressing on an ongoing basis – not just when you show up for a routine prenatal appointment.

 

The Connected MOM program is designed to support the in-person prenatal care you receive from your LWH physician. However, if your pregnancy is progressing positively, your physician may reduce the number of in-office appointments you are required to attend.

Your Connected MOM team includes:

Your LWH Obstetrician

Your LWH obstetrician is responsible for your medical care throughout the duration of your pregnancy and has enrolled you in the Connected MOM program. Your physician will monitor your readings on an ongoing basis in order to keep your pregnancy on track.

Your C.A.R.E Concierge

Once enrolled in the program, our LWH C.A.R.E (Connected MOM Activation, Resource, and Education) Concierge will always be one quick phone call away. Call (225)706-BABY (2229) Monday through Friday 8am-5pm if you need help setting up your equipment or have general questions about the program.

Tech Support

Connected MOM has a dedicated tech support team available to you Monday through Friday 8am-6pm. If anything goes wrong with your equipment or you just need some help remembering how to use the technology, you can call 1-866-517-1377, and we will be available to troubleshoot with you.

You are the key player in making your time in the Connected MOM program a success.

Here are three simple ways for you to benefit most from our program:

  • Weigh yourself each week

    Over the course of your pregnancy, it’s expected that your weight will change. To ensure you are on the right track and maintaining a healthy weight for you and your baby, your LWH obstetrician needs up-to-date information. When you step on the scale regularly and send in your weight, you are helping your care team monitor your progress and keep you healthy.

  • Take your blood pressure weekly

    Blood pressure is a good indicator of prenatal health. By taking your blood pressure at home and sending the readings to us, your care team will be able to closely monitor any changes and alert you of abnormal readings or necessary steps.

  • Check your MyOchsner account regularly and enable notifications

    MyOchsner is our online patient portal and how your LWH physician and nurses will communicate with you. During and after your pregnancy, you will continue to receive helpful information for your care through MyOchsner.
