National Training Program

CMS Innovation Center Shares "Strong Start" Results

Mother and Baby
“Strong Start” is a 4-year initiative to test and evaluate enhanced prenatal care interventions for women enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP who are at risk for having a preterm birth. 
The goal of the initiative is to determine if these approaches to care can reduce the rate of preterm births, improve the health outcomes of pregnant women and newborns, and decrease the anticipated total cost of medical care.
The work of the Partnership for Patients and the first strategy of "Strong Start" contributed to decreasing early elective deliveries by 64.5% nationwide between 2010 and 2013, which may improve birth outcomes and increase the number of healthy newborns.
