For Critical Thinkers

The OBIX system’s E-Tools were developed to aid, not replace, clinicians in making timely, informed, and quality decisions at the patient bedside. E-Tools are not only helpful clinically, but they can be used to educate staff, to reinforce and clarify NICHD definitions during the assessment of the fetal heart rate. Additionally, with the increased focus on uterine activity, key information is presented for evaluation and management of uterine activity during labor.

Uterine Activity (UA) Tool

With patient safety and labor management at the forefront of obstetrics, the UA Tool was developed for clinicians to evaluate uterine activity over time, and to be able to assess frequency, and rule out tachysystole during labor. The tool allows care providers to confirm evaluation results or make modifications based on their assessments.

Fetal Heart Rate (FHR) Tools

Developed in collaboration with Lisa A. Miller, CNM, JD, the OBIX system’s FHR Tools assist clinicians with the ability to apply NICHD definitions with confidence during the assessment of FHR baseline, variability, accelerations, and decelerations.

Charting Modules & Reporting

Used Through All Stages of Labor & Birth


Charting modules complement clinical workflow to quickly and accurately document all steps of a patient’s care from the bedside to the nurses’ stations. Charting modules include flowsheets, care plans, and graphs.

Included Modules

  • Maternal Care: Intrapartum, Recovery, Post Partum,
    Strip Annotations, Care Plans
  • Newborn Care: Newborn, SCN, Care Plans
  • Remote Provider Access (RPA): Access to fetal monitoring traces, access to patient notes and flowsheets, limited remote patient charting


Generate comprehensive reports with OBIX forms that can be customized to meet hospital standards. Data in the mother’s record is linked to her baby’s so relevant information is imported into the newborn record. Queries can be customized using any hospital provided tool compliant ODBC– short for Open DataBase Connectivity. Forms and reports include logs and statistics for triage/admission, delivery, intraoperative, newborn, Meaningful Use, and incomplete records.


E-Tools are available to assist nurses, midwives, and physicians with management of electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) and decisions regarding patient care. Developed in collaboration with Clinical Computer Systems, Inc., the E-Tools suite of products supports application of the standardized NICHD nomenclature for fetal heart rate components, application of the NICHD categories, and evaluation of uterine activity.
