Goal Mama: A collaboration to improve the lives of at-risk moms and babies 

How might digital tools amplify and augment the magic that happens between new mothers and the nurses who serve them? In 2016 Hopelab partnered with Nurse-Family Partnership and mobile technology company, Ayogo, to design a goal-coaching app and online companion nurse dashboard, as well as evaluate its implementation and efficacy. During this session, we will review the innovation process that led to Goal Mama, how product features were co-designed, and what was learned in a national pilot study.

Hopelab is an SF-based social innovation lab focused on designing science-based technologies to improve the health and well-being of teens and young adults. They bring together behavioral scientists, technologists, designers, strategists, and young people to co-design, test, and scale products.

Fred Dillon, Senior Director of Strategy & Design

Fred works with multi-disciplinary teams and partners to develop digital solutions that improve the health and well-being of adolescents and young adults. Most recently, he has been spearheading the development of a goal coaching application for Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) moms and nurses. NFP is an evidence-based home visiting program that empowers and encourages low-income first time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies.
