S7: #067: Juan Pablo Segura of Babyscripts on Transforming Prenatal Health & the iBirth Acquisition

August and September are traditionally two of the busiest months for new births, which means that right now, there are millions of pregnant women dealing with all the complexities of pregnancy and preparing for the arrival of a child. With connected devices being used for everything from monitoring general fitness to tracking post-surgical recovery, you would think that there would be a solution to help pregnant women monitor and maintain their health through pregnancy. I’m joined today by Juan Pablo Segura, he’s a passionate entrepreneur and healthcare technologist with a background in consulting and finance. He and his cofounder, Anish Sebastian, worked together at Deloitte before coming up with the idea for their company, Babyscripts. Babyscripts is a remote monitoring and big data solution used by doctors and pregnant women to detect problems much faster and deliver better care to improve birth outcomes. Juan Pablo and I dive into the traditional standards for prenatal care, and how consumer-centric solutions can be deployed to enhance the interaction between patients and providers and lead to better outcomes. We also go into the analysis into economic incentives that exist in prenatal care that led to their ‘eureka moment', and how they created a commercial model that maximizes the benefits for patients and providers, and payers, too. Babyscripts is in the news this week with their acquisition of iBirth – a leading patient-facing app that includes informative and powerful content about nutrition, exercise and more. We discussed this acquisition and how the combination of iBirth and Babyscripts will create an even more powerful solution that’s on track to improve the care received by millions of pregnant women. Today's Topics: The historical and current standards for prenatal care in America The development of risk-specific prenatal care that is enabled through connected technology How the latest American College of Obstetrics (ACOG) guidelines will drive new standards and practices The reasons that led Babyscripts to focus on marketing to doctors and providers instead of directly to consumers. The acquisition of iBirth and how it will improve and impact Babyscripts' growth Links and Resources Mentioned: Juan Pablo Segura on Twitter Juan Pablo Segura on LinkedIn Babyscripts on Twitter Babyscripts on Web iBirth on Twitter iBirth on Web Babyscripts press release on the iBirthacquisition Article from npr.org Focus On Infants During Childbirth Leaves U.S. Moms In Danger Article from npr.org U.S. Has The Worst Rate Of Maternal Deaths In The Developed World From Washington Post How two bachelors teamed up to transform the pregnancy experience Digital Health Events Join Digital Health Today This episode is made possible, in part, by Optum.

S12: #113: Jane Sarasohn-Kahn on Women's Health, Social Determinants of Health, and the 'She-cession'

Guest host Sophie Park interviews health economist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn for this fast-paced discussion about women's health, social determinants of health and the 'she-cession' in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We've seen the headlines during COVID-19: Rising caseloads. Millions of lives lost. Economic devastation. Schools closed. But these only tell part of the story. The impact of the pandemic on mental and physical health extends far beyond those that are directly infected with the disease. Delayed diagnosis, canceled or delayed treatment, loss of employment and the collision of home and professional responsibilities has had a tremendous and long-lasting impact. Join Jane Sarasohn-Kahn and guest host Sophie Park in this discussion about the affects of the pandemic. For more discussion about women's health, check out the video panel with Jane and Sonia Millsom, Chief Commercial Officer of Maven Clinic, on the September 9 Digital Health Forum.
