PROJECT AIM AND GOALS

We set out to change the method that is used to measure the results of different labor management strategies. We created an indicator that uses each patient’s unique physical characteristics to adjust an obstetrical care provider’s cesarean delivery rate to reflect the physical characteristics of their patient population. This indicator is called the Birthrisk Cesarean Birth Measure.
