A new text message service from the Indiana State Department of Health aims to connect more moms-to-be with pregnancy resources.
“We are always looking for more ways that technology can be used to improve Hoosiers’ health,” said Dr. Kristina Box, Indiana State Department of Health commissioner in a statement.
The move allows specialists to provide direct links through a smartphone to resources including health insurance, transportation and baby supplies. The service, available in English and Spanish, was created as a tool to reduce Indiana’s high infant mortality rate.
