Enhancing community OB/GYN quality of life
Novant Prince William Medical Center in Manassas, VA, previously worked with an OB hospitalist vendor that did not facilitate a collaborative relationship with community OB/GYNs. Prince William partnered with Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) and since the launch, the local OB/GYNs have seen a dramatic change.
OBHG collaboration helps increase birth volume
Area hospitals found themselves competing for a shrinking maternity patient pool. In 2010, Bellevue Woman’s Center in Schenectady, NY, began a relationship with Ob Hospitalist Group to help cultivate the hospital’s status as a center of quality OB care. A critical part of that strategy was to nurture collaborations with the center’s affiliated private certified nurse-midwifes (CNMs) — a group of professionals well-positioned to attract more patients and stabilize the labor and delivery unit’s patient volume.
OBHG partnership takes women’s hospital from perilous to prosperous
An independent OB/GYN group planned to leave Willow Creek Women’s Hospital in Johnson, AR, taking over 50 percent of the hospital’s deliveries with them. Hospital leadership knew they needed to make a change or else the hospital was at risk of closing. They enlisted the help of Ob Hospitalist Group to take over OB emergency room coverage and to grow and retain volume.
OB hospitalist partnership elevates patient safety by implementing consistent standard of care
Like many hospital departments, when it comes to the labor and delivery unit, each physician makes his or her own clinical decisions based on their training and experience. Hospital leadership trusts that OB/GYNs are practicing the most up-to-date, evidence-based medicine from The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). But what happens if they aren’t using the most current best practices? Patient safety can suffer, and as a result, medical malpractice risk increases. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-Denton in Denton, TX, sought Ob Hospitalist Group's partnership to help standardize protocols and elevate patient safety.
