Joondalup to offer home monitoring for fetal heart rate after promising trial

Western Australia’s Joondalup Health Campus (JHC) will offer all pregnant women under its care the ability to monitor their progress at home using a smart handheld device to reduce the number of times they need to visit the hospital.

JHC, which offers public and private hospital services in a combined 722-bed service operated by Ramsay Health Care, has been running a trial of Israeli company HeraMED’s technology since early last year, initially for monitoring fetal heart rate (FHR) in low-risk pregnant women.
