Newly launched mHealth service Text4Baby just announced that they now have more than 22,000 registered users for the service, which White House CTO Aneesh Chopra officially launched last month: "We are excited to report that we now have 22,327 text4baby registrants, and a total of 537,087 messages have been sent to text4baby users!"
Text4Baby is a free public health service that aims to provide timely and expert health information through SMS text messages to pregnant women and new moms through their babies’ first year.
Text4Baby, which was launched by a consortium of the White House, CDC, Voxiva, Johnson & Johnson, MTV, CTIA, Healthy Mothers Health Babies Coalition and many more, has also added new partners at a fast clip since its launch. Just this past week the service added the West Virginia Perinatal Partnership, Health Department of Northwest Michigan, San Diego Coalition (co-chaired by San Diego Medical Society Foundation and Alliance Healthcare Foundation), Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota and Vanguard Health Systems to its growing roster of partner organizations.
Text4Baby also provided a state-by-state breakdown of its registered users, which we have posted below:
