Labor and Delivery 2008

March 7, 2008

JCAHO's Sentinel Event Alert, issued in July 2004, suggested that improved patient outcomes and reduced risk in labor and delivery care can occur through expanded staff training and communication, improved fetal monitoring and the availability of prenatal information. Today’s labor and delivery systems seek to provide clinicians with better tools for documentation and communication to meet those objectives. How well are those solutions hitting the mark?

Key report findings include:

  • 43% of participants indicate their system lacks interfaces, including a basic ADT interface.
  • 20% are considering replacement of their L&D system. Why? Who are they considering?
  • 93% of overall commentary was positive. Which vendors are doing really well?

Vendor products qualifying for ranking in the study were:

  • Clinical Computer Systems (CCSI) OBIX Perinatal Data System
  • GE Centricity Perinatal
  • Hill-Rom WatchChild
  • Philips OB TraceVue

Other products included in the study were:

  • CliniComp Essentris Perinatal
  • McKesson Horizon Perinatal Care
