of the Future of Obstetrics
Meanwhile, at the bedside, forward-thinking clinicians are hungry for more focused solutions for long-standing challenges within their specific service lines. At home and in business, they have seen technology streamline and often improve their experience and they are looking for the same in their clinical practice.
Obstetrics is particularly well positioned to benefit from advanced systems. Suffering from high malpractice exposure, a shrinking population of hands-on clinicians and patient profiles with increasing complexity, many of the country’s leading obstetricians are looking to augment traditional training and education with tools designed to address specific weak links in the care process.
To this end, PeriGen, the leader in Clinical Decision Support (CDS) systems for obstetrics, assembled an advisory group tasked with:
• Describing current patient care challenges
• Prioritizing where in OB that technology can have the most positive impact
• Defining the scope of research projects to demonstrate the impact
This multidisciplinary group, comprised of obstetric chairs of top health systems, experienced labor & delivery clinicians, a leading malpractice attorney, and perinatal software creators, came together to create a road map for a new era of HIT and clinical synergy in obstetrics.
