‘LEANBH’ is a pilot research project providing remote healthcare monitoring to expectant mothers to improve the detection and treatment of hypertension during pregnancy. The goal of the Leanbh project is to develop and validate a cloud based platform that collects, analyses and presents home based blood pressure and urine measurement data and associated risk factors to improve the management and treatment of hypertension throughout pregnancy. Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are a leading cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. More continuous monitoring of blood pressure (BP), urine, and symptoms throughout pregnancy via home based monitoring devices combined with advanced decision support algorithms could help identify women at risk and improve the health outcomes of the mother and fetus.
Since the project commenced in June 2015 the HISRC have been engaged in the delivery of several research outputs, namely; (1) the development of the Leanbh Mother’s App, (2) development of the Leanbh Health Record, and (3) publications.
