Access to quality indicator data is necessary for informed healthcare decision making.

In a publication and presentation at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) annual meeting, Ovia Health uncovered just how difficult it is for the average patient to access live-saving quality data to inform their healthcare choices.

In order to bring these data to patients and help inform decisions to improve outcomes, Ovia has created our own validated dataset of quality indicators. These tools can help patients avoid adverse outcomes, like unnecessary intervention and C-sections that often lead to dangerous and costly complications.
