Achieve zero harm in obstetrics

US maternal mortality rates haven't improved in 10+ years. It's time for a change.

Seventy-four percent of OB claims are related to a lack of clinical judgment. With more than 700 deaths annually, the U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rate of any high resource country. Not having the right training can lead to poor communication, higher costs, and unnecessary harm. HealthStream’s Quality OB program focuses on developing clinical judgment, is aligned with the most current NICHD, AWHONN and ACOG guidelines, and has been adopted by multiple industry-leading organizations.
