Amy Dagestad, Director of Labor & Delivery at Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, Iowa had the following words to say when we asked her what they like about their PeriCALM decision support system:
“Although we don’t use all of the PeriCALM integration features, those we do use make life easier. The interface is intuitive and the system is easy to use. We value the availability of PeriCALM Patterns too, especially for difficult labor cases. The users like the system and that’s very important.”
