It's almost impossible to talk about Ovia Health without talking about our mission. Our goal of helping women and families engage with their health is at the core of everything we do — there's not a business decision we make or a conference room we name without that goal in mind.
We know that women who want to start families often have little to no support in the workplace, and it's part of our mission to change that. Our employer and health plan maternity & family benefits were created to transform the way women and families are supported at work. Whether you're heading into a meeting, at your doctor's office, or getting ready to return to your job after having a baby, Ovia Health is there for you.
With Ovia Health, women and families receive the support they need to be healthier and happier — a win for employers, health plans, and our users. When women have benefits to help them achieve their health goals and career coaching to help them achieve their career goals, they can feel confident in their personal and professional lives. When companies provide these benefits and support, they can keep healthcare costs low and retain top talent. When there are fewer babies in the NICU, when mom and baby are able to avoid an unnecessary C-section, and when a parent gets the mental health support they need, our communities, our companies, and our world are all better for it.
Leading employers and health plans are partnering with Ovia Health because they can help their employees and members be healthier through a trusted, HIPAA-compliant and HITRUST-certified organization. Employers do not receive participant-level data about their employees -- for instance, we would never share whether an employee is trying to conceive or is pregnant. This allows employers to understand what benefits could further improve health outcomes among the population overall while keeping private health information private.
Our goal in 2019 is to continue to change maternal health in America, helping more women live happier, healthier lives. Because we have millions of users and billions of data points, we’re able to do amazing things for women's and family health. We're working on reducing the rates of unnecessary C-sections; driving behavior change to improve health outcomes, and helping women return to work after leave. When we use our data and our influence, it's to make life better for women and families. We're proud to be voluntarily HIPAA-compliant and HITRUST-certified (the same criteria and privacy standards that medical professionals are required to meet) because we know that the data in our care is sensitive, and we treat it that way. This is why our entire product -- not just our enterprise product -- is HIPAA compliant and HITRUST-certified.
Women and families love Ovia Health because we support them through their parenthood journeys and careers, and employers love us because they want healthier employees and top talent at their companies. We're honored that millions of people trust Ovia Health with their most important moments, and we're looking forward to continuing to build culture and improve outcomes for women and families.
