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. This second post in the series will review the positive impact an OBHG program can deliver to partner hospitals by improving the Patient Experience and raise HCAHP scores. You can read the prior post on Patient Safety here. Future posts will address the positive impact an OBHG program can make in Risk Reduction, Physician Satisfaction, Nursing Staff Satisfaction and Retention and Organizational Readiness

Within Ob Hospital Group’s (OBHG) stated mission of elevating the standard of women’s healthcare is improving the patient experience. While safety and clinical best-practices are vital to positive outcomes, a positive patient experience and satisfaction are also of utmost importance. 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.

About Memorial Regional Medical Center
In 1824, in Paris, amidst the devastation following the French Revolution, a group of 12 women came together to form the congregation of the Sisters of Bon Secours.  The Sisters' purpose was to nurse the sick and dying. In 1881, the Sisters of Bon Secours arrived in the United States where they continued their work . Over time, they built a multi-state network of hospitals, long-term care facilities and healthcare services. All preserved the Bon Secours Catholic tradition of providing quality care, especially to the poor and the sick.  For more information visit http://www.bonsecours.com/find-a-facility-memorial-regional-medical-center.html
