“This relationship is truly a partnership to better understand the needs of pregnant patients through power of technology and convenient maternity experiences."- Juan Pablo Segura, President and Co-founder of Babyscripts
WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) July 11, 2018
Babyscripts, the leading prenatal app and the first mobile clinical tool to allow OB/GYNs to remotely monitor their pregnant patients’ progress and health, has entered into a partnership with WellSpan Health, an integrated health system serving central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland. The partnership provides pregnant patients who receive care at WellSpan Health access to the Babyscripts app during the entirety of their prenatal journey and beyond.
“This is the latest way we’re supporting soon-to-be moms and their families,” said Megan Lecas, Vice President of Women and Children Services at WellSpan Health. “We understand that every pregnancy is different, and an expectant mom can have a question about any part of her journey at any time. This new mobile platform will serve as a complement to the outstanding care provided by our women’s health team at WellSpan in a way that keeps patients engaged while reducing the number of checkup appointments needed.”
The Babyscripts program offered through WellSpan Health is composed of a mobile app and wireless blood pressure cuff. Mothers can use these devices to send health data remotely and securely to their health care provider, providing additional flexibility and transparency between moms and clinical teams. The Babyscripts™ app also delivers evidence-based guidelines approved by the patient’s obstetrician in the form of daily nutritional, medical and lifestyle action items.
“We are incredibly excited to work with the WellSpan Health team,” said Juan Pablo Segura, President and Co-founder of Babyscripts. “This relationship is truly a partnership to better understand the needs of pregnant patients through power of technology and convenient maternity experiences. Whether it’s through mobile engagement or virtual care models, WellSpan is on the cutting edge of care and it’s an honor to work with such an organization.”
Babyscripts is a virtual care platform for obstetrics that allows OBGYNs to deliver a new model of prenatal care. The platform is powered by a suite of mobile apps that drive better patient decision making, internet-connected devices for remote monitoring, and a host of population health tools to give providers access to patient data in real time. When using these tools, patients experience increased engagement and satisfaction, while OBGYNs are able to identify patient risk more quickly, improve clinic workflow, and make more money.
Babyscripts™ is a new model for prenatal care that is transforming the way expectant mothers use technology to work with their OBGYN practice. It’s the first mobile, clinical solution to provide remote monitoring of an obstetrician’s patient population while directly improving patient satisfaction and practice reimbursement.
