Postpartum hemorrhage is a primary cause of maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide. While there have been intervention-based efforts implemented to minimize the likelihood of postpartum hemorrhage events, more research is needed to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity rates. This presentation will cover preliminary results from a quality improvement project funded by Jump ARCHES that includes scientists at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign College of Engineering and the Jump Simulation Center. The project aims to design a utility-focused alarm system aimed at reducing the percentage of maternal morbidity and mortality resulting from postpartum hemorrhage events.
- To understand the Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety model
- To be able to apply the Systems Engineering Initiative for Patient Safety to analyze care processes.
- To identify opportunities to improve workflow integration and design of maternal hemorrhage alerts.
