Vasowatch LLC is a start-up founded by an obstetrics nurse and an electrical/computer science engineer at the University of Pennsylvania. They are working to create a non-invasive wearable that helps to make childbirth safer by identifying a woman's risk for a postpartum hemorrhage based upon her blood vessel activity. Continual assessment of her blood vessels helps to accurately assess her risk and helps with situational awareness for her care delivery team.
Stefanie Modri has been an obstetrics (labor and delivery, high-risk OB, antepartum, postpartum, childbirth educator, community nurse) for over 24 years. She is a S.Jersey native and earned her degrees at TCNJ for my BSN and Drexel University for my MSN in Innovation and Intra/Entrepreneurship in Advanced Practice Nursing. Stefanie owns a few businesses (some healthcare, some not) and is thrilled to present Vasowatch at B. PHL to become a leader in accurately identifying who is at-risk for a postpartum hemorrhage. In her career, she wants to improve how we care for mothers giving birth by partnering with nursing and experts in other fields to solve problems and ID solutions.
