Maimonides Medical Center Achieves Groundbreaking Obstetrics Results with the Medical Brain – 91% Reduction in ‘Red Never Events’

Maimonides Medical Center (MMC)

Maimonides Medical Center (MMC), a leader in Maternal Fetal Medicine and the largest obstetrical care provider in New York, and HealthPrecision announce groundbreaking achievements in reducing Obstetrical Never Events by 90.7% with the Medical Brain AI technology. The collaboration between MMC and healthPrecision, led by Maimonides’ Dr. Shoshanna Haberman, MD, Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine and Dr. Eyal Ephrat, CEO healthPrecision places the Medical Brain AI’s clinical decision support and automation in the hands of providers to help those providers deliver high precision obstetrical care. With the Medical Brain, MMC has taken a significant leap forward in combating the rise in maternal morbidity, which has alarmed the nation and highlighted the urgent need to reduce adverse events and improve access for high quality care.

The American Journal of Ob/Gyn Study

The 3-year study of the impact of the Medical Brain’s impact, conducted by the Department of Maternal Fetal Medicine illustrated the Medical Brain’s AI based clinical decision support application had a profound impact on quality, reducing OB red never events from 118 to 11 patients per 1,000. Red never events are those situations that are preventable and place mothers and infants at extreme risk. Red never events include such potentially harmful situations as not discontinuing the administration of Pitocin with a non-reassuring fetal heart rate, lack of administering magnesium sulfate for patients with severe preeclampsia and lack of administering antibiotics to patients with positive group B strep.

“The Medical Brain is effective in helping us reduce never events and improve quality for our high-risk patient population. It is a high-precision, real-time system that accurately sees and constantly analyzes the patient’s clinical picture and identifies any health risks, delays, gaps in care or documentation then guides the clinician so they can take immediate action,” said Shoshana Haberman, MD, PhD, director of maternal-fetal medicine and medical informatics.

A New Era in Obstetrical Care

“Labor and delivery is very dynamic. A lot is happening at the same time in our busy service. So, things can, very quickly, go from normal to problematic for mom and baby,” said Scott Chudnoff, MD, chair of the OBGYN department. “With the Medical Brain, we have a tool that allows us to identify trends or detect when something negative is about to occur. It’s an early detection, warning and guidance system that alerts us to critical events and helps us take timely steps to ensure the safety of our patients.” This advanced approach has not only proven effective in significantly reducing adverse events but also in streamlining care delivery and reducing the burden on healthcare professionals.

Leading the Way in Healthcare Innovation in Obstetrics

“This is the beginning of what the future of medicine will look like, and Maimonides is at the forefront,” Dr. Chudnoff said. “As we integrate and utilize computer assistance more, it will lead to better patient management and less time for patients to spend in the hospital or emergency room.” “The success at Maimonides Medical Center serves as an example for healthcare institutions nationwide, demonstrating the invaluable role of AI in addressing critical healthcare challenges Obstetrics. MMC and healthPrecision are at the forefront of this transformative journey, committed to advancing healthcare to improve outcomes for with technological excellence,” noted Dr. Eyal Ephrat, CEO healthPrecision.
