Boca Raton, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2014 -- Obstetric care units are consistently one of the top three riskiest service lines in a hospital, and many are closing across the United States. At the same time, the number of experienced, qualified obstetricians is trending down due to malpractice insurance and time demands, which will result in a shortage of high-quality maternity care in the coming years.
According to scientific literature, 40 – 50 percent of birth traumas that occur in the United States each year are potentially avoidable. For mothers, their babies, and the hospitals that care for them, this is a staggering statistic. With obstetric care units being one of the top three riskiest services for hospitals, concerns from patients and medical staff alike have been abundant. In this 21st Century Television feature story, Matthew Sappern, CEO of PeriGen discusses the technological “safety net” that is actually improving clinical and financial outcomes.
