Stakeholders across Florida and the U.S. have taken note of the importance of postpartum care, including its impact on morbidity, mortality, and health care costs.

*A new state statute requires participation by maternity units in at least two FPQC initiatives. On August 23, 2022, FPQC hosted a webinar where we shared information with hospital teams about opportunities for participation. PACC participation can contribute to the fulfillment of this requirement.
