PeriGen Taps Amendola Communications for Fully Integrated Marketing Plan

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 9, 2018 – Amendola Communications, a nationally recognized, award-winning healthcare and health IT public relations and marketing agency, is pleased to announce that PeriGen, an innovator of perinatal early warning systems, has engaged Amendola to develop and implement a fully integrated marketing and PR program. Based on a prior engagement, PeriGen is now looking to the firm to focus on thought leadership, content marketing, and lead generation and nurturing.

 

The United States currently has the worst maternal morbidity in the developed world (26.4 deaths per 100,000 live births), and studies have demonstrated that more than 50 percent of bad outcomes in childbirth are preventable. To address these preventable complications in both mothers and babies, PeriGen has developed artificial intelligence (AI)-powered solutions that automate the identification of early warning signs during labor, supporting clinicians with standardized analysis and timely alerting of troubling trends so that they can follow protocols in a more consistent and timely way.

 

Amendola will leverage a broad range of marketing, public relations and content strategies to promote PeriGen’s market-leading maternal and fetal surveillance systems. The content marketing will include bylined articles and website content and will highlight the thought leadership and subject matter expertise of PeriGen’s leadership and its clinical end users. This includes a recently published USA Today Letter to the Editor addressing maternal mortality.

 

“We are extremely glad to be working with Amendola Communications in a more expanded capacity,” said Matthew Sappern, CEO of PeriGen. “We feel that their public relations and marketing capabilities, specific to the health IT industry, are unparalleled. With their strategic guidance and personnel, we will greatly increase the awareness of PeriGen and what our solutions can do to lower negative outcomes during childbirth.”

 

PeriGen has developed PeriWatch™ Vigilance™, a new fetal and maternal early warning system (EWS) that automatically identifies patients whose conditions are worsening, facilitating more timely interventions. Able to work alongside existing perinatal systems, PeriWatch Vigilance is an early warning system that alerts care teams to clinical trends that may require intervention.

 

“PeriGen is a visionary company that gives clinicians the tools they need to improve—and even save—babies’ and moms’ lives,” said Jodi Amendola, CEO of Amendola Communications. “We will be leveraging our deep health IT and healthcare experience to spread the word about the important work that PeriGen is doing to combat complications during labor and delivery. Together, we will execute strategic marketing programs and develop content that will increase awareness among healthcare and insurance organizations of the strong clinical and financial outcomes that PeriGen’s solutions deliver.”

 

About PeriGen

PeriGen offers innovative perinatal software solutions that incorporate artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance clinical efficiency and standardization of care during childbirth. Led by skilled OB practitioners and IT visionaries, PeriGen has created the PeriWatch platform to provide consistent analysis and efficient display of complex data in real-time to promote better human recognition and communication about impending problems during labor. With PeriWatch clinicians can spend more time on direct patient care and less time on manual calculations and data manipulation. To learn more, visit www.perigen.com; follow us on TwitterLinkedInYouTube, and Facebook; or call 984.208.4250 or email.
