OBHG partnership supports family practice residency program when emergencies arise
The family practice residency program at Cox Medical Center South in Springfield, MO, once relied on a single community OB/GYN for on-call C-section coverage and OB support. Cox South, located in Springfield, MO, has a high-risk patient population, with a large portion of patients on Medicaid. The residency program accepts high-risk patient transfers from its partner maternal fetal medicine practice, which are even higher risk. Residents were tasked with caring for these high-risk OB patients with minimal support. Their partnership with Ob Hospitalist Group has allowed the residency program to thrive.
Hospitalist partnership helps OB/GYNs achieve greater work-life balance and boosts patient safety
Imagine being a healthcare provider with a full day of patient appointments, and every few hours, you must leave the office and tend to an issue in the hospital’s labor and delivery unit. This is what it’s like for private-practice OB/GYNs who are also responsible for call coverage. Baton Rouge General in Baton Rouge, LA, noticed that the process put a strain on physicians’ ability to provide high patient satisfaction in their clinics, and it caused decreased patient safety in the labor and delivery unit. In addition, it took a toll on OB/GYN work-life balance.
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.
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.
