The California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) is a group of public and private, California leaders in healthcare, committed to improving care and outcomes for the State’s pregnant mothers and newborns.

The Collaborative includes 132 member hospitals, representing over 90% of all neonates cared for in California NICUs.

Our major goal is the development of a Collaborative Network of public and private, Obstetric and Neonatal providers, insurers, public health professionals and business groups to support a system for benchmarking and performance improvement activities for perinatal care throughout California.

CPQCC 2015 Pre-CAN Meeting
February 27, 2015
Coronado Island Marriott Resort
Coronado, CA

The 2015 California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop will focus on California datasets, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and The Joint Commission’s Perinatal (TJC) Core Measure related to Exclusive Breast Milk Feeding.

The California datasets that will be explored include California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC), California Mater- nal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC), High Risk Infant Fol- low-up Program (HRIF), and the California Perintatal Transport Systems (CPeTs). Their utility in benchmarking quality care and value will be explored related to the neonatal population.

The topic of neonatal abstinence syndrome will also be explored. The current state-wide and national approaches to decreasing current variation in medical management will be presented and discussed.

Finally, the Joint Commission’s reporting requirements for enhancing exclusive breast milk feeding in all newborns and its impact on delivery services will be presented and discussed. A panel discussion related to exclusive breast milk feeding will address challenges to implementation and lessons learned.


At the conclusion of the program participants should be able to:

  • Identify existing California datasets (CPQCC, CMQCC, HRIF, CPeTS etc) and their utility in benchmarking quality care and value.

  • List three areas of potential quality improvement that you will explore by using at least one of the California datasets discussed.

  • Define Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and discuss the current state-wide and national approaches to decreasing current variation in medical management.

  • Describe the current TJC reporting requirements for exclusive breast milk feeding in all newborns and find ways to overcome barriers to implementation.


    The California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop is geared towards multidisciplinary teams of caregivers from neonatal units that include; neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses, respiratory therapists, as well as hos- pital risk management and quality improvement specialists who can implement change in the management of the topics presented.
