  1. Fulltext. Access to maternity care in rural Washington : Its effect on neonatal outcomes and resource use.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study sought to ascertain the effects of poor local access to obstetric care on the risks of having a neonate diagnosed as non-normal, a long hospital stay, and/or high hospital charges.

    Methods

    Washington State birth certificates linked with hospital discharge abstracts of mothers and neonates were used to study 29 809 births to residents of rural areas.

    Births to women from rural areas where more than two thirds of the women left for care were compared with births to women from rural areas where fewer than one third left for care.

    Results

    Poor local access to providers of obstetric care was associated with a significantly greater risk of having a non-normal neonate for both Medicaid and privately insured patients.

    However, poor local access to care was consistently associated with higher charges and increased hospital length of stay only if the patient was privately insured.

    Conclusions

    These results indicate that local maternity services may help prevent non-normal births to rural women and, among privately insured women, might decrease use of neonatal resources.
