Maternal-Fetal Medicine coverage for the whole continuum of maternity including preconception, antepartum, delivery, and postpartum
Overview of teleMaternal-Fetal Medicine Services and Solutions
teleMaternal-Fetal Medicine (teleMFM)
In the United States, there continues to be a shortage of obstetricians and gynecologists, which has reached a critical level. Even more so is the need for qualified OB/GYNS that specialize in Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) for women who face at-risk pregnancies whether from a problem with the mother’s health (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure) or the baby’s health (i.e., growth restriction, congenital abnormality).
Our teleMFM service allows our experts to ensure that access to an MFM is consistent and always available for an emergent or scheduled need. Our teleMFM team works in partnership with local teams, including nurses, medical assistants, sonographers and local maternity providers (e.g., obstetricians, family practitioners, and midwives) along with the patient’s hospital to ensure needed consultation, diagnosis, and treatments are provided. We help mitigate the need for any unnecessary travel or patient transfers.
Our expertise in maternal fetal medicine is across the broad range of complications that occur for women and their babies. Our team of experts allow us to bring that expertise to a wide geographic area using teleMFM capabilities. Our specialists can be available throughout pregnancy including preconception, antepartum, delivery, and postpartum. Outpatient care includes advanced ultrasound support/services within the offices of the maternity providers.
