About this Webinar

From maternal care deserts to OB-GYN shortages to unmet SDoH needs, more and more pregnant women are finding it difficult to get the care they need. Telehealth and other virtual tools have proven effective in extending the impact of clinical teams while creating higher levels of access and equity to women, regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographic location.

The problem is that deploying the right technology in the right ways can be challenging. How can payers and providers ensure they are using best practices and the best partners to support both the patient and local providers? How can they effectively monitor and mitigate risks sooner while keeping the care delivery ‘local’ and the entire care team on the same page? How do we create a sustainable economic model for care delivery in rural and underserved regions?

This multidisciplinary panel will engage in a fast-paced, interactive dialogue with a focus on learning objectives such as:

  • Understanding the true impact that maternity deserts have on maternal and infant outcomes
  • Examining the latest data on maternity care deserts, provider burnout and OB-GYN shortages
  • Sharing how payers and providers are effectively leveraging virtual care for rural and underserved women
  • Highlighting lessons learned and hurdles to overcome when implementing virtual solutions to augment maternity care
  • Underscoring the importance of integrating virtual services to avoid creating new silos and more care coordination challenges for patients
