text4baby showcased at the #mHS12

Earlier today, Kim Kadlec from Johnson & Johnson spoke about some innovative ways that pharmaceutical companies are using mobile technology to engage patients. One of the initiatives that she described was the text4baby program.  Johnson & Johnson is the founding sponsor for text4baby, a mobile health initiative designed to improve clinical outcomes among pregnant women. text4baby launched nationally on February 4, 2010.

The program has four goals:
1.    Demonstrate the potential of mobile health technology to address a critical national health priority: maternal and child health.
2.    Demonstrate the potential of mobile health technology to reach underserved populations with critical health information.
3.    Develop a base of evidence on the efficacy of mobile health interventions.
4.    Catalyze new models for public-private partnerships in the area of mobile health.

Text4baby is made possible through a broad, public-private partnership of over 800 local, state, and national partners. Founding partners include the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition, Voxiva, CTIA - The Wireless Foundation, Grey HealthCare Group (a WPP company), and Johnson & Johnson, the Founding Sponsor.

Kim Kadlec also showed us a video demonstrating the BAND-AID® Magic Vision Starring Disney's® the Muppets app.  Put on one of these Band-Aids on your kids and see Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo come alive in stunning augmented reality (AR). Here's a little video showing you how it works:
