OVIA HEALTH CELEBRATES 5 YEARS, EXPANDS MATERNITY BENEFITS SOLUTION
New parenting benefits solution innovates the way employers support working parents
BOSTON (Dec. 19, 2017) – Ovia Health, the leading women’s health and technology company, celebrated its fifth birthday with the launch of Ovia Health for Parenting. Now spanning the entire journey to parenthood, Ovia Health’s comprehensive maternity benefits solution helps employees navigate their health and fertility (Ovia Health for Fertility), monitor and track their pregnancy (Ovia Health for Pregnancy), and transition back-to-work as confident working parents and follow their child’s development (Ovia Health for Parenting).
“It’s been five years since Ovia Health created the femtech revolution,” said Paris Wallace, CEO and co-founder of Ovia Health. “In this time, we’ve helped over 8 million women and families. And now we’re transforming the workplace. Our Motherhood in America report found that women are leaving the workforce or changing jobs because there is a gap between the support they need and the support they are receiving from their employer. Our maternity benefits solution solves this problem, engaging with employees from the moment they walk in the door, all the way through return-to-work and being a working parent.”
With over 40 clinical programs, predictive coaching, coaching curriculums, personalized care plans, and customized employer benefits information, Ovia Health’s maternity benefits solution prevents costs, increases benefits utilization and satisfaction, improves health outcomes, and fosters a family-friendly workplace that helps increase retention and return-to-work. Ovia Health’s new parenting solution provides much needed support to both women and men as they navigate working parenthood.
“We started the company in 2012 with the mission of improving women’s and family health,” said Gina Nebesar, chief of product at Ovia Health. “We saw an opportunity to provide women and parents with much needed resources, guidance, and reimagined care. We now touch the majority of U.S. births through our products, supporting women and parents with fertility advice, prenatal nutrition information, breastfeeding help, career guidance, and return-to-work coaching.”
In the past five years, Ovia Health has reached many milestones, including:
- Over 4 million pregnancies have been tracked on Ovia Pregnancy
- Billion data points have been collected, helping personalize to the algorithm so that women and families can live healthier lives
