QI Initiatives

CMQCC is committed to improving maternal and infant outcomes through our data-driven quality improvement initiatives. After identifying improvement opportunities through our research, we take a multifaceted solutions-based approach to quality improvement, that includes:

  • Development of evidence-based quality improvement toolkits for the leading causes of preventable death and complications for mothers and infants
  • Engage hospitals through quality improvement collaboratives to help them implement the evidence-based care identified in our toolkits
  • Engaging in partnerships with key state and national stakeholders
  • Providing hospitals with the perinatal performance metrics and benchmarking data they need to drive internal change through our Maternal Data Center
  • Partnering with state agencies, professional groups, consumer organizations and policymakers to promote clinician and patient education
