Labor and Delivery

Research has shown that…..

Hypertension affects at least 1 in 7 women during the peripartum period. 12.7% of pregnancy-related deaths in the United States caused by Sepsis.

There is a 21% greater mean QBL among vaginal deliveries where patients were exposed to 12 or more hours of intrapartum Oxytocin.

Labor and Delivery

“There are approximately 30,000 deaths per year that are attributed to hypertensive related disorders of pregnancy, and we think that 60% of those can be prevented.  Decisio is incredibly important because we can treat hypertension so much more quickly than we traditionally have been able to.” -Medical Director, Women’s Services

Hypertension affects at least 1 in 7 women during the peripartum period. 12.7% of pregnancy-related deaths in the United States caused by Sepsis. There is a 21% greater mean QBL among vaginal deliveries where patients were exposed to 12 or more hours of intrapartum Oxytocin. Smart Clinical Monitoring from DECISIO targets these problems.

Connecting InsightIQ – Labor and Delivery

InsightIQ aggregates data from multiple sources, EHR, pharmacy, medical devices, lab, etcetera, into a common unified data platform. From that platform, It provides continuous monitoring and visualization of the patient’s condition though unit configurable dashboards at the bedside or remote.  InsightIQ helps clinicians prioritize their attention to those at risk deteriorating patients for early intervention – through color coding (Green, Yellow, Red) of clinical values and digitized standards with contextual alerts. InsightIQ can be accessible anywhere via your hospital’s web browser – handhelds, desktop, WOW, or bedside monitors.

InsightIQ Capabilities

Enables situational awareness at-a-glance during time-sensitive critical situations


  • Continuously surveils patients with clinically validated protocols
  • Identifies and prioritize attention to at-risk patients across all labor and delivery units for quick triage
  • Color coding of clinical data, results, and status, helps clinicians prioritize attention to at-risk patients. 

Displays tailored
to each specialty

Methodology:  From written protocol to digitized workflow

The power of InsightIQ comes from the digitized standards of care and clinical protocols. The Bundles of Care tie multiple clinical actions into a package of interventions that clinicians can use to improve outcomes. 


InsightIQ uses no proprietary algorithms. We start with peer-reviewed protocols that are easily configurable for your hospital specific workflows, data values, and thresholds – configurable for each specific unit and patient population. All standards of care and indicators are implemented in accordance with facility approved protocols.
