What is a Perinatal Quality Collaborative?
Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are state or multi-state networks of teams working to improve the quality of care for both women of reproductive age and infants. Members of the PQC identify health care processes that need to be improved and use the best available methods to make changes as quickly as possible. (Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
The Wyoming Perinatal Quality Collaborative (WYPQC) was born out of a committed group of stakeholders from Wyoming, as well as providers who serve high-risk Wyoming births in surrounding states. This group will focus on implementing quality improvement projects that impact a broad range of issues that affect maternal and perinatal health in both healthcare and public health settings.
