Babyscripts, Inc., the leading virtual care platform for managing obstetrics, is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Inova Health System, the region’s leading not-for-profit healthcare provider. In concert with a $500K investment, Inova will partner with Babyscripts to deploy the market’s most extensive, clinically-validated virtual care obstetrics platform; and support holistic care for mothers in pregnancy and postpartum.
Babyscripts has spent the last four years building a clinically-validated, virtual care platform to allow OBGYNs to deliver a new model of prenatal care. Using internet connected devices for remote monitoring, Babyscripts offers risk-specific experiences to allow providers to manage up to 90% of pregnancies virtually, allowing doctors to detect risk more quickly and automate elements of care.
Aligned with their investment, Inova will deploy the Babyscripts’ solution through Inova Well’s Childbirth and Parenting Programs. Inova will use Babyscripts to engage women continually through their pregnancy and postpartum with digital tools, which will also reduce risk across the population.
“In order to move the needle in maternal outcomes, innovative healthtech companies have to meaningfully partner with the provider community,” says Anish Sebastian, CEO and co-founder of Babyscripts. “Inova is not only committing to leverage Babyscripts through a commercial agreement, but now putting hard earned capital toward transforming the entire delivery of obstetrical care as a category. It’s a monumental decision that will go far beyond impacting moms solely in the DMV. This partnership truly is a validation of our vision for obstetrics: a risk-based model that we’ve coined ‘precision prenatal care.’”
“Babyscripts offers the opportunity to further the impact of our wellness programs on the lives of expecting families in the region,” says Seema Wadhwa, Assistant Vice President Sustainability and Wellness at Inova. “We currently see over 11,000 people through our childbirth and parenting education, and we are pleased to expand our holistic care offerings for pregnant moms and their families with this additional tool.”
Babyscripts has leveraged their established success in prenatal care to support expansion into the postpartum space. With the recent acquisition of iBirth, one of the first provider-delivered, co-branded pregnancy apps in the marketplace, Babyscripts now offers the most holistic and engaging technology program to manage pregnancy and postpartum. With this additional funding, Babyscripts shows a commitment to dominate the space with clinically validated provider-prescribed technology for pregnancy and postpartum, now managing more than 150,000 pregnancies across 20 states.
Babyscripts™ is a new model for prenatal and postpartum 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.
