The Labor & Delivery Challenge

An article in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2010, cited research that found despite their low incidence, the consequences of bad obstetric outcomes can be devastating for patient, hospital, and clinicians alike. In fact, OB claims are typically twice as costly as other clinical areas. At root, this healthcare challenge comes down to complex data loads faced by clinicians responsible for numerous concurrent labors, communications gaps among the clinical team, and the use of old standards and old tools.

Advanced Fetal Monitoring Systems that Keep You Ahead of the Curve

PeriCALM perinatal software modules provide the standard, consistent FHR reads, improved team collaboration, and timely identification of clinical outliers needed to meet the labor and delivery challenge.  PeriCALM systems are installed in hundreds of hospitals in North America.  Clients range in size from health systems with large numbers of sites and thousands of births each year to small individual hospitals with several hundred births a year. PeriGen systems support over 16,000 clinicians, and 275,000 births a year. Here’s why.

TracingsPeriCALM handles routine, repetitive number-crunching and analysis, leaving more time for great patient care

Developed by a team of experienced obstetric clinicians, the PeriCALM solution lets computers do what computers do best — routine calculations and sometimes complex analysis — so that clinicians can do what they do best — provide great patient care. With PeriCALM, you follow your existing workflow, with the addition of being able to annotate directly on the strip and view any portion of the strip instantly (without the need for accessing archival data). The result is better labor & delivery unit productivity and a higher level of patient safety. Get the details on how…

PatternsPeriCALM offers additional pattern recognition features to highlight potentially important labor events

One of the most popular and powerful modules offered within the PeriCALM solution is PeriCALM Patterns. This patented software, invented by Emily Hamilton, MDCM, applies pattern recognition to strip data so that potentially important labor events are highlighted to support clincial decision-making. Get the details on how…

CurvePeriCALM Curve summarizes labor progress at a glance

This powerful module adds yet another layer of dynamic information to monitor labor progress in real time, integrating FHR and contraction activity data to present an interpretation of labor progress against specific thresholds to quickly pinpoint areas of potential concern. See how…

TracingsPeriCALM facilitates better clinical communications

Visible at bedside, at centralized monitoring stations, and remotely, PeriCALM offers a shared view of each delivery in progress minimizing mis-communication about what’s really happening at any point of time. Review how…

TracingsPeriCALM eliminates double data entry, integrating seamlessly with your EHR

PeriCALM’s integration with leading electronic health record systems (EHR) is some best available. Our inbound/outbound ADT data feeds extend not only across PeriCALM screens, but into and out of your EHR. Even annotations done on the strip — one of the core benefits of PeriCALM — can be fed into EHR fields.  Add centralized with Active Directory, fully-automated single sign-on, and coldfeed with any printable screen (including tracings) and what you have is a system made to make your life easier and your medical records more complete and accurate.
