New app could reduce unnecessary treatment

A new app that can help predict if a woman is going to give birth prematurely could reduce unnecessary treatment and hospital admissions.

 

The QUiPP app was developed by researchers from Guy’s and St Thomas’ and King's College London. It helps healthcare professionals identify and treat women who are more likely to give birth prematurely.

 

Jo Deery, who had seven miscarriages before being referred to St Thomas’ Hospital, had the QUiPP app used on her. She says: “My chance of going into preterm labour again was very, very small. I was able to go home and it gave me a brilliant peace of mind.”
