Medstar Health 10 Year Study
Becker’s Hospital Review published the results of 10-year study (78,459 births) on the impact of process improvement and the use of PeriGen software on the rate of cesareans, NICU admissions and and the use of extraordinary fetal resuscitation procedures.
Despite an increase in factors associated with rates of cesarean sections, the rate of cesareans remained stable after the introduction of PeriGen software and advanced management strategies.
NICU admissions declined by more than half after PeriGen was introduced and the process improvement steps were introduced.
The number of babies requiring unusual resuscitation measures in the delivery room decreased from 5.2% to 2.4%.
