Re­duc­ing early elec­tive de­liv­er­ies

Modern Healthcare - - BEST PRACTICES -

Dis­sem­i­nate best prac­tices: Ed­u­cate med­i­cal staff about the risks and share that in­for­ma­tion with pa­tients.

Use tech­nol­ogy: Con­fig­ure elec­tronic health records with alerts and de­ci­sion-sup­port tools to pre­vent early de­liv­er­ies.

Get lead­er­ship on board: Make sure hos­pi­tal lead­ers are aware of risks and ev­i­dence-based prac­tices.

Con­sider out­side help: Oak­wood hired an out­side con­sult­ing com­pany to per­form a re­view and spot op­por­tu­ni­ties for im­prove­ment.
