We are developing and implementing software which incorporates evidence-based guidelines into algorithms that will provide situational awareness, clinical decision support, and enhanced communication for clinicians caring for laboring mothers and their babies. When our licensed protocols were implemented on paper at a university hospital tertiary care center, they led to a significant decrease in serious safety events and to a concomitant reduction in litigation costs. riskLD is turning the protocols into a software solution that will interface with the Labor & Delivery electronic health record so that implementation can occur on a larger scale. By providing situational awareness, riskLD's platform is calling attention to situations with the potential to lead to suboptimal outcomes, thereby allowing the clinical team to address them in a timely manner. By providing enhanced communication, riskLD's platform is further facilitating awareness of critical clinical information in systems where continuity of care is increasingly fragmented. Most importantly, by providing clinical decision support, riskLD's platform is presenting guidance to the clinical team with a robust and expansive set of proprietary algorithms, thereby ensuring the highest level of evidence-based care.
Differentiators vs EHR Functionality:
Currently extant monitoring/EMR systems used on Labor & Delivery units present fetal and maternal data that is disaggregated and embedded in tables within the EMR, and provide limited snapshots of the labor process and duration. To our knowledge, no system currently exists that consolidates fetal and maternal data in a visual interface that also provides a comprehensive overview of the entire labor in the way that our system does.
Differentiators vs Competitors:
Our platform has demonstrated the ability to decrease significantly the incidence of Serious Safety Events for women and their babies during the labor and delivery process. In conjunction with that decrease, a dramatic decrease has also been seen in litigation costs to University Hospitals, the implementing system. This allowed those funds, rather than being lost to litigation, to be used to further the mission of the hospital system.
