The one year pilot that awarded Philips with Indonesia Tele-health Company of the Year Award took place with 656 pregnant women and showcased how this solution helps to unite information and action to identify and manage high-risk pregnancies by bringing care to where it’s urgently needed - primary health centers and patient homes.
