Fierce Healthcare: Creative solutions needed for maternal care in rural locations

OBHG's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mark Simon recently shared his perspective with FierceHealthcare on addressing the challenges many women in hard-to-reach locations face when it comes to convenient, quality maternal care. The article speaks to the need for creative and innovative solutions to address maternal health care delivery challenges in rural communities (such as OBHG's Maternal Health Access Solutions).

An excerpt from the article:

To improve access to maternal health care services in “hard-to-reach” rural and urban locations with gaps in maternity care, the Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) is bringing care into these communities so that women don’t have to travel great distances for maternal care. Drawn from OBHG’s experience and success working with more than 200 hospital partners of all sizes, we’re bringing custom design solutions including community OB-GYN clinic staffing, coverage by certified nurse midwives, family practitioners or other clinicians, and telemedicine options. These solutions are helping relieve short- and long-term staffing stressors at hospitals, supporting community providers and preventing patients from needing to leave their community for care due to inadequate availability.
