Journal of OB/GYN Hospital Medicine: Assessment of OB hospitalist level of engagement on labor and delivery

February 2022’s Journal of OB/GYN Hospital Medicine features an article by OBHG’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mark Simon on the assessment of OB hospitalist level of engagement on labor and delivery.

The article provides an overview of an assessment tool developed by OBHG to measure specific behaviors that OB hospitalists demonstrate on the labor and delivery, postpartum and antepartum units and how these behaviors relate to the OB hospitalists' success. The results ultimately showed that hospitals that “hard-wire” the involvement of OB hospitalists in patient care share common characteristics and have a pervasive culture of team-based care. These hospitals also better position OB hospitalists as the “maternal safety champions: of the entire labor and delivery unit.

Ob Hospitalist Group is using the results from the assessment to drive culture change within our hospital partners. Click here to read the full article and learn more about the assessment.
