Babyscripts - "Access to Health Services Leveraging Virtual Care"
Juan Pablo Segura, President of Babyscripts presents at "Access to Health Services Leveraging Virtual Care" on June 10, 2020. Babyscripts exists to solve the problems generated from the critical shortage of obstetrical providers in the US. Babyscripts offers virtual maternity care experiences that address the outdated model for pregnancy care that has not moved the needle in decreasing maternal morbidity and mortality; an inability to address social determinants of health; and now the critical need to transition care outside of the clinic due to Covid-19. Babyscripts is a virtual care platform that allows healthcare providers to deliver a new model of prenatal and postpartum care. The platform is powered by a mobile application that drives enhanced patient engagement and increased data collection, internet-connected devices for remote monitoring, and a host of population health tools to give providers the ability to detect increased patient risk in real time, enabling providers to deliver maternity care at any time and at any place without an in-person visit. Depending on the risk of a patient, pregnant mothers are given internet-enabled medical devices (like a bluetooth enabled blood pressure cuff) and access to a mobile application loaded with gestational-age and practice-specific educational content. Patients can also access bi-directional chat functionality and social and mental health surveys depending on the challenges they face at home. Babyscripts' tools monitor women for elevated risk and alert the provider through a unique trigger alert system to enable risk management and intervention. Increased digital touchpoints and remote monitoring enable the provider to transition care outside of the clinic and address situations where patients might not be able to make an in-person visit, allowing providers to automate a majority of their patient care while more effectively allocating time and resources to higher risk patients. As providers navigate the changing face of healthcare, Babyscripts is supporting them through our Virtual Care Resource Center, offering the most up-to-date information on OB-GYN best practices for maternity care, clinical guidance from trusted sources, reimbursement guidance, market intelligence, and more.
Mahmee - "Access to Health Services Leveraging Virtual Care"
Melissa Hanna, Cofounder and CEO of Mahmee presents at "Access to Health Services Leveraging Virtual Care" on June 10, 2020. With 700 deaths and at least 50,000 severe injuries per year, the United States has the worst maternal mortality and morbidity rates of all developed nations, and yet spends much more than any other country on maternal and infant healthcare, over $160 billion annually. This paradox is due to a lack of digital infrastructure and operation capacity to provide proactive, comprehensive support to every mom and baby before crises occur. To resolve these issues, Mahmee offer both the software platform and the services necessary to design and implement value-based, outcomes-driven maternal and infant health care programs. Care Coordination Software Platform: Mahmee’s platform links health systems, providers and allied health professionals with their patients, and automates communication and workflows. Healthcare becomes collaborative, and more effective. Value-Based Programs & Services: Many organizations do not have all of the various types of care providers needed to proactively engage their entire maternity population, so reimbursement revenue is limited, and costly, preventable incidents occur. Mahmee’s network expands service capacity thus reducing financial risk and increasing revenue for partnering health systems and organizations.
