Webinar: The Future of OB Hospitalist Programs: The Unexpected Deliverables

As patient safety, clinical quality and outcomes consume increasing portions of the financial risk and penalties, OB hospitalists programs are growing and evolving to help risk for women and children’s services.

You might expect that with an OB hospitalist onsite 24/7, hospitals are better equipped to manage obstetric and gynecologic care and emergencies, providing the ultimate in patient safety while reducing liability and risk. That’s true. But there are unexpected benefits as well.
