With the increase in the adoption of remote and virtual health technologies as a result of COVID, there has been unquestionable improvements in access to care. Yet, major systemic issues still persist, across the contiguity of care. We will look at how technology in partnership with care teams can create meaningful improvements in the maternity care journey.

Anish Sebastian
CEO and Co-Founder, Babyscripts

Anish co-founded Babyscripts in 2014 with the vision that internet-enabled medical devices and big data would transform the delivery of pregnancy care. Since the inception of the company, Anish has received numerous accolades including being named a “Champion of Change” for precision medicine by the White House, one of the Top 40 Transformers in healthcare by MM&M Magazine, Healthcare Transformer by the Startup Health Academy in New York, and a Minority Business Leader honoree by the Washington Business Journal. Anish Sebastian is also the architect of the first "Prenatal Care Moonshot,” focused on eliminating maternal mortality by 2030 through mobile/digital technology, and Babyscripts. 

In his role as CEO he has raised over $20 million in venture/angel financing for furthering his vision of a data centric model in prenatal care, which includes the closure of a Series A-1 of $6 million led by Philips in 2019. He has led the Babyscripts product team, guiding the direction of the product from its inception, finding the product market fit, and fully commercializing it in multiple markets. Currently Babyscripts is installed in 50 health systems that manage over 200K pregnancies annually. Anish has successfully led several research endeavors, including two key studies of Babyscripts product that have been published in academic journals, including JMIR, and presented at ACOG.

Anish is a frequent speaker on the future of healthcare. He has spoken at several venues including the BioIT Showcase, Burrill Digital Health, Healthdatapalooza, NPR, mHealth Summit, Drexel University School of Medicine, GW School of Public Health, Startup Health Festival, and JP Morgan Healthcare Conference.
