Babyscripts is a doctor-delivered digital health tool designed to enhance the doctor/patient relationship outside the clinic during routine, low-risk pregnancy care. Patients enroll in the care app and receive to-do lists, nutrition, exercise and behavior guides. They also receive a “mommy kit” with a connected weight scale and blood pressure cuff. Data generated from the tools are captured and uploaded to a profile on Babyscripts, and permit real-time feedback and intervention from the provider. The company recently partnered with MedStar Health, a not-for-profit health system in Maryland to provide its patients with the mommy kit. The company is working to expand its services to high-risk pregnancies as well. In 2017, the firm partnered with Cone Health to pilot a study that focuses on women with a history of diabetes or who have developed gestational diabetes. Around 100 patients of the Center for Women’s Healthcare will have the option to sign up for remote monitoring. Patients will use the Babyscripts app to input and transmit blood sugar values from their glucometers. The Babyscripts system will relay blood sugars in real time to the Cone Health clinical team, allowing for more prompt interventions if problems arise.
