MANASQUAN NJ USA September 6, 2005: The value of maternity disease management programs can have a significant impact on containing healthcare costs and improving outcomes by reducing the number of pre-term deliveries. According to recent statistics from the March of Dimes, one in every eight babies born in the United States is born prematurely and in their first year of life, premature babies cost employers nearly 15 times more than full-term babies, with an average cost of $41,610 vs. $2,830.

In addition, about 10 percent of new mothers experience postpartum depression, according to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The associated feelings, such as sadness, anxiety and restlessness, can be so strong that they interfere with daily tasks. Postpartum depression can occur at any time within about the first six months after giving birth. If left untreated, it can last up to a year or longer.

Maternity Disease Management: Assessments, Guidelines and Monitoring To Meet Positive Expectations, an October 5, 2005 audio conference, will examine case studies of maternity management programs, including pre- and post-natal assessments, care guidelines, monitoring techniques and outcomes.
