AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange


New Issue Focuses on

Innovative Approaches To Improving Birth Outcomes

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announces the April 15 issue of the Health Care Innovations Exchange (https://innovations.ahrq.gov).
  • The featured Innovations describe three different approaches to improving outcomes for newborns and pregnant women—a payment policy aimed at eliminating early, nonmedically necessary, elective births; a pregnancy medical home model that helps primary care practices provide robust care management and care coordination; and a program that provides free doula care to underserved women.
  • The featured QualityTools include a toolkit that provides resources for health care providers and community-based organizations to help expectant mothers get evidence-based care to improve birth outcomes; a toolkit that addresses quality improvement in prenatal care and offers a collection of “lessons learned” by health plans serving Medicaid members; and a free mobile information service designed to promote maternal and child health.
  • To access other content related to efforts to improve birth outcomes, go tohttps://innovations.ahrq.gov/narrow-by-subjects/?term=781 and narrow the results by selecting the term Fetus under Patient Population/Age.
