OBHG’s “Future of Obstetrics: Industry Survey Report,” provides insight into perceptions, trends and shifting priorities among OB/GYN physicians nationwide.
The perspective of OB clinicians offers insights into how stakeholders can improve outcomes for pregnant women and recruit and retain OB/GYNs to support hospital labor and delivery volumes.
We hope the knowledge gained from this survey will help drive positive change and support our common mission to elevate the standard of care for all pregnant and postpartum women.
The report compiles survey results from over 1,100 OB clinicians from across the country.
Key findings include:
- Younger OB/GYNs are looking for more stability and work-life balance through employed vs. independent practices, and many of them do not have a choice in where their patients deliver.
- When OB/GYNs have a choice in where they send their patients, high-risk support and on-site coverage are the two primary factors in their decision-making.
- While the models and services vary, 24/7 in-house coverage models – through OB hospitalist models or residency programs – are growing in prevalence, particularly the outsourced OB hospitalist model.
- Nursing shortages and education on labor and delivery are major concerns for physicians when it comes to patient safety.
