REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The award-winning parent and teacher communication mobile app Bloomz (www.Bloomz.com) today announced an exclusive 5-year partnership with the Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (Ohio AAP), with funding provided by Cardinal Health Foundation. The partnership is focused on educating parents and caregivers regarding health, wellness, and safety towards young children.
In the first quarter of 2017, Bloomz and Ohio AAP (www.ohioaap.org) created a pilot program that produced tremendous results. The Ohio AAP was able to gather data from 77 unique childcare teachers and 186 unique parents.
Here are the top findings from the pilot:
- More than 93% of participating caregivers stated the information they received via Bloomz was perfectly matched, delivered, and personalized to their needs.
- More than 87% of parents and caregivers surveyed after the pilot acknowledged engaging with the health content and finding it highly valuable for improving their children's wellness
- Via pre- and post-survey data, the Ohio AAP saw more than 43% of families and caregivers make actual "behavioral changes," at home or at childcare centers, in regards to their children's wellness.
"These kinds of changes affect individuals, families, and child care communities, helping to build resilient children. It's hard to measure that kind of impact!" said Dr. Judith T. Romano, MD, FAAP, Medical Director, Ohio AAP's Child Care Good4Growth Program.
During the exclusive 5-year partnership, the Ohio AAP will share critical children's health and wellness topics including:
