Obstetrics Program Suite
Maternity and newborn care is commonly the biggest source of hospital payouts for commercial payers, but when improvements are made in communication, education and operational processes, outcomes can be improved and costs can be reduced1,2. For example, one payer saw a 46% decline in unnecessary NICU admissions when they communicated about the need for careful oxytocin (Pitocin) use to induce labor, better education for expecting mothers and avoiding deliveries before 39 weeks2.
