In recent months, surprise medical billing has garnered increased attention from lawmakers and the news media. Surprise medical billing may arise when a patient visits an in-network facility and receives care from out-of-network physicians. The “surprise” can occur when a patient confirms a hospital is covered by their insurance and later finds out that the physicians providing care are out-of-network providers. A recent Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) analysis found that out-of-network billing is becoming more common and potentially more costly in both the emergency department and inpatient settings.
Please welcome Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio, TX to the OBHG family! We kicked off our 20th new partnership of the year with this full-time, Type A OB emergency department.
Starting next July, the Joint Commission (the group that administers accreditation programs for hospitals and healthcare organizations) will require accredited hospitals to meet 13 new elements of performance related to maternal health. The Joint Commission recently issued a report introducing two new standards that address maternal hemorrhage complications and severe hypertension/preeclampsia.
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) in January 2019 and since the launch, the local OB/GYNs have seen a dramatic change.
Ob Hospitalist Group physicians Dr. Peter Genaris, Dr. David Lang, Dr. Elliot Roberts, and our entire Bellevue Hospital team were recently recognized by medical students and OB/GYN residents for their exceptional contributions to clinical education.
