Better Maternal Outcomes: An IHI Rapid Improvement Network

Through the AHA’s Better Health for Mothers and Babies initiative, we invite hospitals and health systems to participate in the Better Maternal Outcomes Rapid Improvement Network – a free, six-month program focused on maternal outcomes and respectful care. Sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the network will assist community and safety-net hospitals in implementing promising practices and improve care delivery for all women and newborns. Participating organizations will learn how to spread best practices and protocols through a variety of shared learning formats. The next session begins Oct. 8. Learn more details in the PDF below.
