An initiative aimed at preventing unnecessary early-term deliveries reduced the rate of such deliveries in 25 hospitals across the U.S. by 83%, according to a study in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. "This quality-improvement program demonstrates that we can create a change in medical culture to prevent unneeded early deliveries and give many more babies a healthy start in life," study lead author Dr. Bryan Oshiro said.
