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.
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.
