"The difference in quality of care with OBHG is night and day. For example, we track missed deliveries very closely (the rate of live births not delivered by a Board Certified physician). These incidents have gone from 5% in 2007 to 1% in 2009 under OBHG."
SAFE Commitment to Quality
OBHG continually works to expand its capture of quality data to enhance its ability to share significant and useful information with hospital partners. Not only does this information empower hospitals to identify trends and opportunities for quality improvement, but it also demonstrates in quantifiable terms the results and efficacy of their OBHG provider program.
Quality data can be tracked and analyzed to establish the bottom-line value of OBHG programs with regard to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services core measures which directly impact hospital reimbursement through annual Value Based Purchasing penalties or bonuses. OBHG shares relevant metrics with its hospital partners regularly as part of collaborative efforts to improve patient safety and quality in a measurable, and meaningful, capacity.
