At the start of 2020, Indiana University Health formed a partnership with Babyscripts to deliver Virtual Maternity Care to the 9,000+ mothers and babies that receive pregnancy care through their hospitals every year. Known for their cutting-edge approach to medicine and treatment options, the six-hospital system and largest network of physicians in the state of Indiana prepared for a slow roll out, eventually planning to offer both the maternal digital education and maternal health monitoring layers of Babyscripts Virtual Maternity Care to all their pregnant patients.
Last week, we sat down with the team at Inception Health, the digital innovation arm of the Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin health network. Michael Anderes, Chief Innovation and Digital Officer, Froedtert Health and President, Inception Health; and Kelly Stevenson, Senior Manager, Inception Health, shared how they approach innovation to ensure that new digital health solutions are impactful and sustainable.
In the face of the urgent demands of the pandemic, aided by relaxed regulations and expanded reimbursement codes, many health systems transitioned to remote care by whatever means possible, scrambling to avoid dangerous gaps in care.
In recent years, patients have become increasingly open to using digital tools for their health. They've come to expect the same technological conveniences from their healthcare provider that permeate every other part of their day to day life.
Reading Health, an early customer of Babyscripts, has long been committed to delivering cutting-edge innovation to its patients. Now as a part of Tower Health’s integrated healthcare provider/payer system, they are part of a collaboration that offers leading-edge, compassionate healthcare and wellness services to a population of 2.5 million people in Pennsylvania. Collaboration across Tower Health enables their hospitals, providers, leadership and staff to leverage best practices across the health system and stand out as a leader in healthcare transformation.
In these times of uncertainty and ever-evolving policies and practices, Babyscripts is committed to sharing the benefit of our long experience in the field of innovation, specifically virtual maternity care. We’re keeping our clients and others abreast of the latest in clinical guidance, best practices, market intelligence, and other topics through our virtual care resource center (subscribe here) as well as through a webinar series with some of our large health system partners (register for our June 24 webinar with Dr. Mark B. Woodland of Tower Health System).
As the economy slowly reopens, health systems and OB-GYN practices are navigating questions around getting patients back into the office, and the future role of the virtual care solutions they've implemented during the pandemic. President Juan Pablo Segura sat down (virtually) with Mira Ketzler, the senior director of the women’s health service line for Advocate Aurora, to discuss the business implications of Covid-19 and what the future holds for health systems post-pandemic.
