Banner Health is the first health care system in the western United States to implement the Intelligent Patient Record for Obstetrics (IPROB), now known as PeriBirth.
Our intelligent OB program helps reduce complications during childbirth, ensuring safe delivery for the more than 30,000 babies born at Banner facilities each year.
The innovative system acts as a complete obstetrics chart for physicians and nurses. It offers prompts and reminders based on thousands of best-practices procedures and protocols.
PeriBirth is part of Banner’s systemwide Care Transformation initiative, which unites best practices in clinical care with leading edge clinical computer systems to provide better, safer care to patients.
Our intelligent OB program is based on the same principles, and uses an electronic medical record system to provide physicians and nurses with customized treatment plans and documentation system to help prevent medical errors.
During labor, monitoring the mother’s progress and checking on the baby’s well being are critical. Our program also includes upgraded monitoring equipment that provides real-time information to the health care team, which improves access to information and improves care.
