Babyscripts

Babyscripts exists for one reason: better pregnancies.

We began our journey in 2014 with the hope of transforming how both doctors and patients think of and ultimately use technology to improve their care. Fast forward two years with not one but two landmark studies, partnerships with General Electric, the March of Dimes, Startup Health, the White House, and relationships with 11 hospital systems around the country — and it seems like we’ve made some progress.

Babyscripts leverages the full power of technology to elevate the standard of prenatal care. When a patient is enrolled into the program by their OBGYN, they receive our mobile app. The mobile app is a “to-do list” that guides the mother through each gestation period with practice-specific, provider-approved tasks related to nutrition, exercise, and other behaviors appropriate to pregnancy and specific to the practice.

The goal of Babyscripts is to keep expectant mothers healthy so that they can deliver healthy babies. Babyscripts end-to-end solution embeds evidence-based care plans, approved by the patient’s own obstetrician, into guidelines for the new mother. Using behavioral science and a crisp user interface, Babyscripts raises patient engagement and encourages healthy behavior while helping the clinic better manage the care of their low risk pregnancies. Additionally, Babyscripts will integrate the product into the OBGYN’s workflow in order to improve capacity and provider utilization.
