Mother Goose Health Partners with athenahealth’s Marketplace Program to Bring Value-Based Care to Obstetrics

New York, NY – June 21, 2022 – Mother Goose Health, the first fully integrated technology platform to offer value based obstetrics care utilizing proven clinical models, today announced a partnership with athenahealth, Inc. through the company’s Marketplace program. As part of the athenahealth® Marketplace, the care management platform is now available for free to athenahealth’s growing network of obstetrics providers. The platform helps to identify pregnancy medical risks early, unify communication and care, and facilitate clinical interventions that improve preterm birth outcomes

“Because our platform was designed by physicians and insurance executives, we are able to achieve a high level of both physician and patient engagement based on proven clinical models that drive significant outcomes improvements and a first of its kind value based maternity care model,” said Mother Goose Health CEO and Founder Kenneth Levey, MD, MPH. “Once a patient enrolls, we secure data on key health and social factors to segment patients into high, moderate, and low-risk groups. Knowing the risk and being able to predict outcomes, we seamlessly notify the obstetrical care team to intervene and then, at the direction of the physician, our in-house team of care managers, nurses, social workers, mental health professionals, physical therapists, and nutritionists utilize virtual interactions and remote patient monitoring to intervene before the next scheduled office visit.” The platform integrates with athenahealth’s electronic health records and medical billing services so obstetricians can easily trigger Mother Goose Health care plans, just like any other order, within their own EMR clinical workflow.

“We are thrilled to have launched Mother Goose Health and made it available to our patients,” said Dr. Michael Plakogiannis, an obstetrician at Lenox OBGYN which is an independent OB-GYN practice in New York. “It seamlessly complements our office visits, decreases routine calls and messages to our team, and gives us visibility into patient needs faster, plus expands our patient offering and capacity. The integration was totally painless, and their team was amazing. This is a real value add for obstetricians.”
