Quality Measures

Scheduled Elective Deliveries Not Medically Necessary

This measure looks at making sure UHH follows the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) standard of requiring 39 completed weeks gestation prior to ELECTIVE delivery, either vaginal or Cesarean section.  Compared to spontaneous labor, elective inductions may result in more cesarean births and longer maternal lengths of stay. There is also research that notes that elective induction doubles the cesarean delivery rate. Repeat elective cesarean births before 39 weeks gestation may also result in higher rates of adverse respiratory outcomes, mechanical ventilation, sepsis and hypoglycemia for the newborns.  There may be rare situations in which an elective induction is medically necessary.   UHH has been able to be at 0% over the last 8 quarters and is performing better than the Wisconsin average rate.

Elective Deliveries


Cesarean Births

This measure illustrates how often women who have never delivered before deliver by Cesarean section (C-section).  There are some situations in which delivery by C-section is the safest way to deliver for mom and/or baby. These decisions are made with great care, as C-section births are associated with higher incidences of complications, longer lengths of stay and have higher health care costs.  UHH has maintained an average of 29.23% over the last eight quarters and is performing near the average percentage for Wisconsin.
