    • Obstetric Hemorrhage Initiative (OHI)

      Obstetric Hemorrhage Initiative (OHI)

      In order to address Florida's pregnancy-related mortality, the FPQC has convened a group of maternal health, public health and quality improvement leaders to work on a maternal mortality prevention initiative. The group has developed a Florida quality improvement Obstetric Hemorrhage Initiative (OHI) to address one of the largest and most preventable causes of maternal mortality in Florida. 

    • The Golden Hour Part I: Delivery Room Management

      The Golden Hour Part I: Delivery Room Management

      The FPQC has launched a new quality improvement initiative addressing the transition from fetal to neonatal life of newborns with a gestational age less than 30 6/7 weeks or birth weight less than 1500 grams. The first phase of this QI initiative will focus on the effects of Delivery Room management practices - including teamwork, thermoregulation, oxygen administration and delayed cord clamping.

    • Early Elective Deliveries (EED)

      Early Elective Deliveries (EED)

      With the success of its partnership in the March of Dimes (MOD) 2011 Big 5 Project to reduce non-medically indicated deliveries <39 weeks gestation, the FPQC has expanded this initiative to more Florida hospitals by continuing to work with the MOD and the Florida Hospital Association (FHA) through the Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET) Hospital Engagement Network (HEN). The three organizations are using the toolkit from the MOD Big 5 Project to assist participating hospitals in reducing early elective deliveries (EED). In order to sustain change in attitudes and practices of providers, payers and policymakers, this initiative also includes a three-year coordinated educational and communications campaign regarding the improtance of the last weeks of pregnancy.


    • Quality Indicator Project

The project’s purpose is twofold: 1.) to pilot potential hospital perinatal health care quality improvement measures, and 2.) to pilot potential hospital data quality measures.

    • Antenatal Steroids

      As part of the March of Dimes Big 5 Perinatal Collaborative, the FPQC will be exploring timely and appropriate administration of antenatal corticosteroids (ACS).
