Advanced analytics could help reduce rate of C-section births.

At North Carolina State University, research engineers have taken a major step toward developing a computer system that would provide doctors in maternity wards with a bedside tool to evaluate risk in real time and determine the best possible option for delivery.

Dr. Julie Ivy, associate professor at NC State's Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and a Fitts Faculty Fellow in Health Systems Engineering, and Ph.D. student Karen Hicklin are using advanced analytics to develop delivery-room protocols so pregnant women and their doctors can make the best possible choices and safely lower the rate of C-sections.
