In recent years, the financial barrier to access for prescription contraceptives has been lifted due to the Affordable Care Act. However, there is still a barrier to access because those who want it still need to get a prescription from a provider. This business plan proposes the establishment of Azura Digital Health, a scheduling tool that obstetricians and gynecologists can use to schedule their appointments, while also offering patients convenience for birth control prescriptions and assistance with finding the women’s health provider that is right for them. Allowing patients to choose their provider can increase quality for their health, since they can choose the doctor they feel is best for them. Additionally, the convenience of getting their birth control prescription helps patients get a simple prescription for what they need in a timely manner. The scheduling tool allows providers to market themselves and broaden their patient base, as Azura Digital Health would do that work for them. Azura Digital Health hopes to improve women’s healthcare quality, breaking the barrier to prescriber access.
