USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital Goes Live with AdaptX for Maternal Health Equity Initiative

AI-driven system leverages EMR data to catalyze improvements in maternal health equity

SEATTLE, October 19, 2023 –  AdaptX®, a self-serve clinical management solution company, today announced the go-live of Alabama-based USA Health Children’s and Women’s Hospital with AdaptX’s Obstetrics Advisor™ solution to improve maternal health equity, in partnership with the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and with generous support from Merck for Mothers.

AdaptX’s AI-driven solution empowers clinical leaders to assess, improve, and manage care across patients, using real-world data from their electronic medical records (EMRs). With AdaptX, clinicians can quickly diagnose hidden quality issues, including racial and language disparities. Critically, AdaptX’s solution enables clinicians to rapidly adapt treatments and workflows, improving care for all patients.

“AdaptX is transforming the way we approach maternal health equity,” said Vicki Curtis, MSN, RN, RNC-OB, director of women’s services for USA Health Children’s and Women’s Hospital. “With self-serve data insights from AdaptX, we are able, for the first time, to rapidly identify and address disparities in care. AdaptX’s real-time perspective is helping our team generate the awareness, focus, and hope we need to deliver improvements for our patients.”

As part of this innovative maternal health initiative, USA Health Children's & Women's Hospital is receiving unique change management training and support from the IHI’s quality improvement experts, reflecting the IHI’s commitment to improving health equity.

“Maternal health equity reflects IHI’s core mission to improve health and healthcare worldwide. We are excited to partner with USA Health and AdaptX to tackle one of the most egregious examples of health inequity in the US,” said Pierre M. Barker, MD, MBChB, chief scientific officer of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). “AdaptX brings powerful data capabilities that link a motivated health system to the best of improvement science. I’m hopeful that this partnership and approach will show practical solutions that will close maternal health equity gaps.”

“The AdaptX team is honored to partner with USA Health and the IHI to improve maternal health equity,” said Warren Ratliff, chief executive officer of AdaptX. “Our priority is to enable clinicians to diagnose and address disparities in care, and our team is inspired by the dedication of USA Health’s obstetrics team. We are deeply grateful for the partnership and support of the IHI and Merck for Mothers in this important work. Together, we will deepen our understanding of risks during the postpartum period and reduce inequities in morbidity and mortality.”

Healthcare leaders are using AdaptX to deliver solutions for their greatest challenges: increasing capacity and access, improving quality, enhancing equity, reducing burnout, and delivering efficiency. At a time when leaders are being asked to do more with less, AdaptX’s self-serve clinical management solution is maximizing the value of health systems’ investments in digital care.
