OBTalk Listserv

Home » OBTalk Listserv

BETA*rm provides OBTalk as a forum for exchanging information among OB team members at BETA member facilities. We’ve created this online tool as an additional risk management resource at no cost to our subscribers.

Our goal is to give you a convenient way to build or strengthen professional relationships, establish new contacts, and expand the means by which you gather and distribute OB information.

BETA*rm hopes you will use the information obtained through OBTalk as a supplement to the expertise and guidance you’re already receiving from your partners at BETA risk management. For definitive answers on any questions or concerns you may have regarding risk management, we encourage you to call us directly at (800) 838-4111, or visit us at Risk Management: Contacts to send an e-mail directly to a BETA risk manager.
