One of life’s most important and rewarding events occurs the moment a
baby enters the world. Expanse Labor and Delivery, fully integrated
within the MEDITECH Expanse Enterprise Health Record (EHR), helps ensure
that the transition is safe and seamless from labor through postpartum
Developed to bridge any gaps between prenatal care, delivery, and
postnatal care, the Expanse Labor and Delivery solution allows
clinicians to review the complete patient story across the care
continuum, while improving patient handoffs, mitigating patient risks,
streamlining workflows tailor-made for nurses caring for maternity
patients, and empowering nurses to deliver high-quality patient care.
Some of the key benefits of the solution include:
Labor and Delivery Status Boards where nurses can view relevant
mother and baby information and receive real-time notifications of
abnormal and critical values, enhancing patient safety.
Mother Baby Recall allows nurses to pull information from the
mother’s chart onto the baby’s chart for flexible, accurate data
capture while documenting.
Labor and Delivery Flowsheets help nurses monitor trends
throughout the progression of labor, facilitate quick access to
Expanse Surgical Services to conveniently document C-section
delivery, and view all care documentation from prenatal care through
active labor and postpartum.
Fetal Monitoring Integration enables care providers to enjoy
easy access to important clinical data from both MEDITECH and other
vendor fetal monitor systems. MEDITECH bi-directionally shares
discrete clinical data — such as vital signs and medications — with
the fetal monitor system, which subsequently shares information back
Flexible widgets, including the OB Prenatal Widget
(content available through Expanse Ambulatory integration), minimize
time-consuming clicks and extra navigation by linking to data, such as
a longitudinal view of prenatal visits.
“Labor and delivery can be unpredictable, so it’s important to have a
complete view of the patient and their progression of labor integrated
all in one place within the EHR,” stated Cathy Turner, BSN, MBA, RN-BC,
associate vice president, MEDITECH. “Expanse Labor and Delivery improves
the continuity of care by streamlining workflow — giving valuable time
back to nurses to better monitor and safely manage their patients.”
