Neonatal Outcomes Improvement Project

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the New York State Department of Public Health, in partnership with NICHQ, began an exciting initiative designed to build the infrastructure of state partners to support quality improvement initiatives. Specifically this project will work to:

  1. Improve newborn and maternal outcomes
  2. Reduce health care costs, and
  3. Establish capability within the state for ongoing quality improvement/transformation with Medicaid and the Department of Health in key leadership roles

The states of Ohio, New York, North Carolina and Arkansas will pilot the evidence based clinical interventions designed to improve care for high risk Neonatal Intensive Care patients.  Additional states are welcome to join the learning network in order to strive for reduction in preterm delivery and low birth rates, decrease cost and improve the morbidity, mortality and quality of life for neonatal patients and their families.
