3-Tier Approach Virtual Maternity Care
Babyscripts’ three-tiered approach to virtual maternity care allows providers to deliver risk-specific care to pregnant mothers at any time, in any place, through a mobile app and internet-connected monitoring devices:
Maternal Digital Education: Virtually connect with expectant and new mothers between visits with a custom mobile app.
Maternal Health Monitoring: Virtual management of pregnant patients through remote monitoring for blood pressure, weight, blood sugar, social determinants of health (SDOH)
Maternal Population Health: Improve patient/member care through a unique collaboration between the care team and the payer.
The solution is powered by a robust set of vetted user experiences, integrations, workflows, and best practices.
“From the beginning, we’ve set ourselves apart from other tech companies by partnering with physicians to make sure that we’re developing solutions that will actually be useful and improve outcomes, not just look and feel ‘cutting-edge’,” said Juan Pablo Segura, co-founder and President of Babyscripts. “This investment is validation that health systems see the value of our solution — and they’re willing to put their money on it.
