How does it work?

Pregnancy can be a wonderful experience for most women. Yet is can also cause concern, especially if faced with risks during pregnancy, for example when tested positive on COVID-19. Women who are treated by the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, part of UMC Utrecht, because of their pregnancy and who have tested positive for COVID-19 are invited to use the Luscii app. They send in their measurements daily to monitor whether their health situation deteriorates. Symptoms, but also vital parameters like heart rate, temperature and oxygen. The medical control center within the UMC Utrecht handles the first alerts of deterioration. If necessary, the birth center of the hospital is consulted to determine whether an intervention is necessary. When the pregnant woman is free of complaints, she switches to a lighter monitoring protocol.

What is the aim of the program?
  • Prevents unnecessary outpatient clinic visits
  • Prevents unnecessary ultrasounds, unnecessary admissions and diagnostics
  • Improves patient experience because the sense of security and less hospital visits
