Evolving Trends in Maternal Fetal Medicine Referrals in a Rural State Using Telemedicine
Presents the results of a study using Arkansas Medicaid claims and birth certificate data from 2001-2006 to make an assessment of maternal fetal medicine (MFM) referrals and consultations from face-to-face interaction to telemedicine over time in a rural population. Discusses the formation of ANGELS (Antenatal and Neonatal Guidelines, Education and Learning Systems) to improve obstetrical care in rural Arkansas and to improve appropriate referrals to MFM specialists.
