World-Class Specialists in Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Partnering with hospitals is how Access TeleCare is improving access to world-class specialty care for communities of all sizes across the country. See how we do this and some of the results we’ve accomplished.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Access TeleCare maternal-fetal medicine program supports maternity providers to:

  • Reduce unnecessary transfers.
  • Increase number of local deliveries.
  • Improve perinatal and maternal outcomes.

Our inpatient MFM programs have reduced transfers of pregnant women by 30 percent and increased the number of deliveries at the local hospital.

Our outpatient programs keep more than 90 percent of expectant families in their local communities for delivery.

We provide 24/7 inpatient coverage including antepartum rounding and ultrasound interpretation. No other private group or organization in the country offers this unparalleled level of MFM care.

Our MFM teams helps with transitions of care from inpatient to outpatient care settings. We also provide continuity of care through outpatient tele-MFM clinics, which ensures very few patients have to leave their local hospital system for ob/gyn-related care. When taking on interpretation of all ultrasound exams at a community obstetrics practice, our MFM team consistently demonstrated detection of abnormalities in 7-9 percent of scans deemed “normal”.
