Quality improvement

Quality improvement for the perinatal health program is linked to three federal grants: Title V Maternal Child Health Block Grant, Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Grant and the Healthy Start Grant.

Improvement in perinatal outcomes is evaluated by nine perinatal performance measures which are reported on each year. Data and activities are reviewed by staff, public stakeholders, and federal reviewers and a plan for the coming year is made to improve the program.
