The Mainstream Childbirth Safety System™

The Mainstream Childbirth Safety System is a clinical decision support application that ensures the effective implementation of Labor & Delivery protocols through context-sensitive guidance that changes based on the patient’s changing conditions. The guidance is a combination of checklists and algorithms, based on best practices and tailorable to the needs of specific organizations.

The clinical content builds on best-practice guidelines developed by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) through the addition of the distilled knowledge and experience of the staff of East Bay Perinatal Medical Associates, one of the busiest Maternal-Fetal Medicine services in the U.S., and the results of additional academic research, including the foundational work of Dr. Julian Parer of the University of California, San Francisco.

The physicians behind the Mainstream system have extensive experience in the field. Their staff has performed over 30,000 deliveries in the past 10 years at Alta-Bates Summit Medical Center, the second highest delivery volume hospital in California.

Experience with the key algorithms of the Childbirth Safety System demonstrates improved clinical outcomes and increased patient safety through improved interventions. If such improvements can be made, the real-world impact is reduced length of stay and decreased legal liability costs.
