We are pleased to announce that we have added "Patient Information Sharing Function (Registration of Pregnancy Information by Family Obstetricians)" to "COVI-CO Covid-19 Coordination Powered by respon:sum," a supporting system for coordinating hospitalizations of pregnant women infected with COVID-19, which was introduced in Chiba prefecture in October 2021.
In response to an incident that occurred in Chiba prefecture last August, in which a transportation destination could not be found for a 29-week pregnant woman infected with COVID-19, resulting in premature labor at home and the death of her newborn baby, the prefecture has developed and put into operation a new type of a supporting system to coordinate hospitalization for COVID-19 infected pregnant women, "COVI-CO Covid-19 Coordination Powered by respon:sum". As of January this year, this system has contributed to coordinating hospitalization for five COVID-19 infected pregnant women.
The newly added "Patient Information Sharing Function (Registration of Pregnancy Information by Family Obstetricians)" is a function for sharing information on COVID-19 clinical symptoms and pregnancy (delivery history, expected delivery date, underlying disease, complications and obstetric abnormalities, etc.) held by family obstetricians (hospitals and clinics) in Chiba Prefecture registered in this system. The information will be shared in advance with the perinatal maternal and child health care center, etc., to contribute to speeding up the hospitalization adjustment process.
