Research

CMQCC’s work to improve maternal outcomes relies on gathering data on maternal mortality through the CA-Pregnancy Associated Mortality Review, analyzing maternal morbidities and disparities through the CMQCC Maternal Data Center, and learning insights from quality improvement project work with research partners.  

In addition to the publications from the CA-Pregnancy Associated Mortality Review, CMQCC has also developed four quality measures endorsed by the National Quality Forum and authored more than 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals focused on maternity care. CMQCC’s research helps to identify quality improvement opportunities in maternity care and directs the focus of our educational and outreach efforts.
