IronHealth partners with obstetrics AI provider

IronHealth, the healthcare professional liability and stop-loss unit of Ironshore, has announced a partnership with PeriGen, a provider of perinatal software products, to offer insureds access to obstetrics artificial-intelligence systems.

PeriGen’s FDA-cleared AI products help clinicians identify clinical warning signs in childbirth. Through the partnership, IronHealth customers can apply IronHealth risk management reimbursement dollars toward PeriWatch Vigilance, PeriGen’s early-warning system.

“We are excited to enter into this partnership that provides IronHealth insureds preferred access to innovative labor and delivery decision support to protect moms and babies,” said Lainie Dorneker, IronHealth president. “IronHealth enters into affiliations with leading healthcare providers, enabling insureds to take advantage of risk management tools and resources at favorable pricing. While specific to each partner, our insureds can stretch available risk management dollars to access a range of quality programs and services to improve the efficacy of healthcare outcomes.”

Medical studies have shown that the majority of adverse outcomes for mother and infant during childbirth are avoidable. PeriWatch Vigilance continuously monitors fetal heartrate patterns and can assess maternal factors reflecting health and labor progression. 

“The sustainability of quality healthcare services, especially in highly litigious specialties such as obstetrics, depends on innovation – a fact for which IronHealth has a deep appreciation,” said Matthew Sappern, CEO of PeriGen. “We are pleased to partner with the IronHealth team and its insureds to advance best practices in obstetric clinician performance and attention to patient care and safety.”
