Individualized Patient Management

Predict Early. Intervene Early.

There are established management strategies you can put in place to help your patient if she is at higher risk for sPTB, with the goal of prolonging pregnancy and improving neonatal outcomes. Take action early, put interventions in place, and help her prepare.

Target Interventions

Knowing which patients are at higher risk helps you focus your time and healthcare resources on the right patients where it can really make a difference.

Individualized Care Plan

Each patient and each pregnancy is different. Care plans should be based on each patient’s PreTRM test result, individual history, and current health assessment for this specific pregnancy.

Educate Patients at Higher Risk

While all patients should know the signs & symptoms of preterm labor, it is especially important for women at higher risk to be attentive to premature labor symptoms. Knowing they are at higher risk can help them be prepared should their baby come early.

Every Week Matters

It is important that women, particularly those at increased risk for delivering early, have a good understanding of preterm birth and the signs & symptoms of preterm labor. Download Patient Handout on Symptoms of Preterm Labor here.
