Reduce preterm birth and NICU admissions

Premature birth affects over 10% of babies.1 Preterm infants require more hospital stays, outpatient visits and prescriptions, resulting in higher medical costs for both members and employers. In order for members to feel truly supported, a comprehensive care approach is needed.

Optum can help identify and close gaps in care; lower costs
