Steering Committee

One representative of each charter member organization will comprise the FPQC Steering Committee. The Steering Committee will establish operating rules for decision-making processes and strategic planning as well as the selection, oversight and monitoring of maternal and infant health care quality improvement (QI) initiatives. The primary responsibility of the Steering Committee will be to identify and address statewide priority perinatal QI issues.

Leadership Team

An Executive Subcommittee representing leadership as well as the maternal and infant health care perspectives and appointed by the Steering Committee along with FPQC Staff Leadership shall form the FPQC Leadership Team. This Leadership Team will be responsible to plan, implement, facilitate, support and evaluate the FPQC’s strategic and operational plans.

Subcommittees

Maternal Health Advisory Subcommittee: This Subcommittee will be established by the Steering Committee to propose and research potential QI initiatives aimed at advancing the health care outcomes of Florida’s mothers. Once the Steering Committee has selected specific maternal health care QI initiatives, this Subcommittee will develop, champion and monitor the implementation and evaluation of the initiatives.

Infant Health Advisory Subcommittee: This Subcommittee will be established by the Steering Committee to propose and research potential QI initiatives aimed at advancing the health care outcomes of Florida’s infants. Once the Steering Committee has selected specific infant health care QI initiatives, this Subcommittee will develop, champion and monitor the implementation and evaluation of the initiatives.

Data Advisory Subcommittee: This Subcommittee will be appointed by the Steering Committee to develop and implement a plan for obtaining, analyzing and interpreting perinatal health care and outcomes to facilitate the Steering Committee’s and Subcommittees’ decision-making regarding the selection of QI initiatives that are appropriate, feasible, engaging, measurable and supportable. In addition, the Subcommittee will be responsible for the design and execution of evaluations of FPQC initiatives.
