Obstetric caregivers around the world are used to write down medical data on paper and entering that data later on. BMA’s platform enables caregivers to use a tablet to enter data quickly in difficult circumstances. With this data, a partograph can be shown in real-time, so doctors can get a quick update when walking into the room.
