Working in the labor and delivery unit can be a dream job for a nurse at a community hospital. Through their expertise, kindness, and support, these nurses help mothers bring new lives into the world. They’re not just witnesses to the miracle of life; they’re active participants, coaching and nurturing patients and their babies through this momentous journey.
Many OB units utilize software specific to obstetrics, which generally offer little means of integration with their hospital’s information system. This lack of integration leads to time wasted switching between their hospital’s EMR and dedicated OB systems.
This case study highlights how a MEDHOST integration helped facilitate a more efficient clinical workflow for one Southwestern community hospital.
