Improving Safety in Obstetrics

Hygeia Health Systems, LLC has introduced its first commercial software program, Labor and Delivery Scheduling Program ( LDSP™ ). 

Background

LDSP™ is an essential component to an Obstetrical Labor Floor Quality and Safety Initiative.  The program’s customized algorithms permit Labor and Delivery administrators to assure that the timing of scheduled deliveries are appropriate and within recommended guidelines.  This feature alone provides assurance that neonates will not be delivered too early.

LDSP™ is a scheduling tool for all Ob Practitioners which:

  • Provides a legible and organized schedule for inductions of labor, C-sections, and other necessary scheduled procedures.
  • Introduces hard stops and decision support for all scheduled inductions of labors and cesarean section.
  • Prints out daily schedule and individual patient information sheets that comply with Medicaid Rule-Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) Initiative 5402.
    • Print outs of the daily schedule both in a spreadsheet format and a text-based page layout to be scanned or inserted into the patient’s chart.
  • Enables an opportunity for discussions between providers and patients about timing of inductions of labor, trials of labor, versions, ambulation, returning to home during latent phase labors, etc.
