OBI 2019 Strategy to Reduce Primary Cesarean Delivery
The community of OBI hospitals will focus on the management of latent labor and arrest disorders for women at low risk for cesarean delivery as our strategy to safely reduce the primary cesarean delivery rate in 2019.
OBI’s strategy supports the implementation of one of two evidence-based options:
Emphasizes timing of admission, shared decision making, and support in labor; and
Focuses on implementing approaches that support spontaneous progress of labor during the first stage of labor.
This first year of participation in OBI is about patient and provider education, as well as systems and relationship building.
