What is a Perinatal Quality Collaborative?
Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are networks of perinatal healthcare providers and public health professionals working to improve maternal and perinatal health outcomes by supporting evidence-based clinical practices and processes. PQCs may include hospitals, pediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians, perinatologists, midwives, nurses, state health department staff, quality improvement experts, and others (Source: ASTHO).
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.
