OBHG Hospitalist Profile Series - Dr. Charles Jaynes

By OBHG Super Admin on January 23rd, 2014

Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is guided by the mission of elevating the standard and availability of obstetric care to expectant mothers. A key component of achieving this mission is hiring dedicated, Board Certified OB/GYNs with a passion for serving people and for their field. Our service-oriented physicians must fit into their individual hospital culture while embracing OBHG’s core values which include delivering excellent care for all patients regardless of circumstance, and doing so with uncompromised integrity. To date, OBHG employs over 240 such hospitalists in over 45 partner hospitals nationwide. Our Hospitalist Profile Series will offer a brief portrait of many of our valued physicians and reveal why they chose to become a hospitalist, why they chose OBHG and what their experience has been thus far.
 

Dr. Charles Jaynes
Dr. Charles Jaynes has been a practicing OB/GYN since 1977.  His professional experience reflects that of a practitioner who enjoys complex obstetrics. The fact that he was honored by his peers as one of Texas’ Super Doctors in Texas Monthly magazine  three years in a row confirms that he not only enjoys but excels in his chosen specialty. Ob Hospitalist Group was very fortunate when Dr. Jaynes chose to join our hospitalist program at St. David’s North Austin Medical Center in Austin, TX in 2008.

OBHG Hospitalists Serve a Vital Role in Implementing a New, Life-Saving Device

By OBHG Super Admin on January 23rd, 2014

In 2011, the Women's Center of Texas within the North Austin Medical Center (NAMC) in Austin, TX, adopted a new postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) protocol to increase patient safety for OB patients with this life-threatening complication. The protocol required the clinical intervention of both Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) hospitalists and Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians in cases of severe PPH (>1500 cc for OBHG hospitalists and >2000 cc for MFMs). A component of the protocol also called for the consideration of non-medicinal/non-surgical methods to control the bleeding in properly selected patients. One such method was the Ebb intrauterine tamponade balloon. This device had been recently designed and manufactured by Glenveigh Medical® and it was being evaluated as an alternative to the Bakri and Utah balloons for non-surgical management of PPH not successfully resolved by medication alone.

OBHG IMPACT SERIES: Patient Experience

By OBHG Super Admin on December 30th, 2013

Ob Hospitalist Group’s (OBHG) mission is to elevate the standard and quality of women’s healthcare. Our programs do just that by making a positive impact across many significant areas of hospital medicine. This blog series: OBHG Impact Series will cover key areas where OBHG makes a difference.

Within Ob Hospital Group’s (OBHG) stated mission of elevating the standard of women’s healthcare is improving the patient experience.

Initially so the patient feels safe, secure and cared for during her visit but also to encourage that patient and her family to return to the same hospital not only for OB/GYN care but all of her families medical needs.

A Toolkit for Healthier Babies

By Mark Simon, MD (VP of Medical Affairs) on December 18th, 2013

Written and contributed by Mark Simon, MD, MMM, Vice President of Medical Affairs Ob Hospitalist Group

This year the March of Dimes® released its update to the Preterm Labor Assessment Toolkit (PLAT). Ob Hospitalist Group is working diligently to implement this toolkit at our partner hospitals. This is a tremendous opportunity for Ob Hospitalist Group to lead within our hospitals and have a direct impact on the care of women and infants.

This evidence-based approach to the assessment and management of women presenting with preterm labor complaints has been shown to improve clinical outcomes and improve the efficiency of care delivery. Successful use of the toolkit will also improve the patient’s experience and meet all three goals of the Institute of Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim:

  • Improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction)
  • Improving the health of populations
  • Reducing the per capita cost of health care Utilizing a toolkit such as the PLAT allows us to demonstrate value in this era of healthcare reform.

Two of the most important tenets of this toolkit are to address the timeliness of evaluation and to standardize the care pathway. As the primary providers of care for patients presenting with preterm labor complaints, OBHG hospitalists are well positioned to meet these goals. We have the ability to quickly assess these women and to ensure that the precise steps of the process are followed. Instead of relying on a large number of providers and/or nurses to follow this pathway, we can more efficiently standardize the process with our comparatively smaller number of OB/GYN hospitalists at each site. Reducing the variation in care will lead to timely diagnosis, timely disposition and improved outcomes for our patients; all delivered in a more cost-effective and patient satisfying model of care.

Our teams at each hospital are committed to becoming champions of change for this project. Our leadership in the front-line of care will greatly increase the success of this initiative and will impact the women and families that you care for. We also hope to partner with several of our hospitals to further study the impact of this toolkit on outcomes.
Hopefully the data we contribute will be useful in expanding the use of the toolkit at hospitals across the nation and the world. Ob Hospitalist Group looks forward to working with our hospitalist team members to successfully implement this toolkit across the country in our united pursuit to better serve women, newborns and their families.
