How might technology increase the scale and impact of the Nurse-Family Partnership program? 

Through our collaborative research, we found that moms and nurses are very interested in using technology to bolster the work they are doing together. We also uncovered that goal setting is a promising approach to keep moms engaged with the program and that technology can support nurses and moms in their goal-related efforts.

Learn why Goal Mama is so important to the Nurse-Family Partnership program, how it might increase retention in the program, and why this kind of technology matters for young mothers.

What’s your goal mama?

The Goal Mama app and companion nurse dashboard was co-designed with moms and nurses to help better-set goals, track progress, and celebrate success. The product includes a variety of features to augment existing program materials and support client engagement, retention, and satisfaction. The HIPAA-compliant platform was co-developed with Ayogo, an award-winning health application firm. The product is available for Nurse-Family Partnership clients and their nurses. Combined, these sites serve more than 50,000 families each year.
