Women's health services getting beyond the delivery room

Women's health services are no longer limited to obstetrics. Smart organizations are expanding women's health to encompass everything from cardiovascular care to orthopedics to wellness, taking advantage of the new emphasis on gender-based medicine. Given the rapidly changing dynamic of this service line, providers have the unique opportunity to capitalize on women's health or risk losing market share to their competitors.

Women's Health: Strategies for Superior Service Line Performance offers the business guidance you need to transition women's health to a comprehensive service line that increases market share, improves clinical quality, drives down costs, and helps drive business to all other parts of the organization.

Receive high-level guidance and case studies to help you:

- Develop a comprehensive women's health program beyond obstetrics
- Build loyalty with women, the No. 1 healthcare decision-makers, as well as their friends and extended families
- Create a road map for long-term success by using EHRs and telehealth to drive down costs, document results, and lead in quality
- Establish strong physician-hospital alignment, with or without employment
- Boost your overall bottom line with a thriving cross-departmental service line
