High-Risk Maternity/NeoNatal Management
Lives can be saved when a high-risk maternity is recognized early on and a continuum of care is facilitated. And, it’s no coincidence that when early, appropriate care is administered at the appropriate level and setting, budgets are positively affected. As a high-risk case is identified, SCM immediately steps forward to work with the patient, family, and the healthcare team to manage care that will ensure the best possible medical outcome at the lowest cost.
SCM offers thorough, effective neonatal care management services at three levels: low risk, moderate risk, and high risk. Our professionals include neonatal care physician specialists and neonate nurses who utilize extensive protocols, guiding the care of premature and neonatal infants. We achieve significant success rates in managing these cases, minimizing the resources required, including financial resources, while maximizing quality of care.
