The Perinatal Quality Indicators (PQI) Initiative supports hospital quality improvement efforts by providing hospital-specific semi-annual or quarterly reports of perinatal indicators and related reports.
PQI is offered to all Florida delivery hospitals at no charge and hospitals can enroll at any time.
FPQC’s PQI have been adapted from measures provided by leading national groups such as the Joint Commission, National Quality Forum, Vermont Oxford Network, California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative(CMQCC), and the Leapfrog Group. The FPQC Data Advisory Committee, composed of representatives from participating hospitals and state partnering organizations, selects and revises data indicators, as well as recommends presentation format.

What will hospitals need to do to participate?
Hospitals do not have to submit any additional data to the FPQC to get these reports.

Currently, there are eight (8) sets of indicators provided to hospitals. Each set contains related indicators.
New perinatal indicators may be proposed and offered.
