Obstetric Hemorrhage Management Toolkit

Pregnancy-related deaths in the U.S. have increased from 7.2 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1987 to 20.1 per 100,000 in 2019. One of the leading preventable causes of maternal deaths and injuries is hemorrhage. MEDITECH’s Obstetric Hemorrhage Management Toolkit supports your organization in the early identification of patients at risk of hemorrhage.
