RightAnswer.com Inc., the Midland-based health technology developer, announced that it had won a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Soon-to-be mothers who have diabetes or other pre-existing conditions will be able to get all the information they need about the risks of taking medications during pregnancy — right at their fingertips.
“RightAnswer.com, a Midland company, was awarded a $150,000 Small Business Innovation Research grant by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The grant will be used for research and development of a mobile application to help health care counsel pregnant patients about the effects of prescription and over-the-counter drugs on their developing babies.”
UW is teaming up with Midland, Michigan-based software company RightAnswer.com to explore the feasibility of an app that would give doctors immediate information about drug risks for pregnant mothers, the university said on its website.
