Babyscripts is a Washington, D.C.-based company with a focus on virtual care for obstetrics. Its stated mission is to eliminate maternal mortality and improve access to care for all mothers. Since its inception, Babyscripts has partnered with other companies to improve its product and services, such as General Electric, March of Dimes, StartUp Health, Philips, and the White House.
The company's product is a mobile application that can be utilized by healthcare providers. The app has resources from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) and healthcare providers can choose what resources are most useful to its patients and allow them to access them. Patients can gain access to the app via their providers and can be enrolled in Babyscripts Modules and sent a Mommy Kit if necessary, which contains internet connected medical devices that can track a mother's health throughout the pregnancy. Healthcare providers can access their patients' health data in real-time through the app. If there are any abnormalities, the healthcare provider is contacted and follow up actions can be taken.
