For obstetrics (OB) nurses, their challenge is twofold: simultaneously caring for both mom and baby.

In a recent episode of MEDHOST’s podcast Health IT on the Record, Bloodworth weighs in on the need for operational efficiency in OB units facing vast job complexities. The discussion is underscored by a review of the clinical and operational benefits an advanced interoperability solution can offer these practitioners.
