CHIPRA Collaboration Helped Transform Perinatal Care Quality

The twelfth Evaluation Highlight from the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) Quality Demonstration Grant Program is now available on the national evaluation Web site.

This highlight focuses on how demonstration partners Florida and Illinois worked together to transform the quality of perinatal care in their respective states. CHIPRA grant funding helped establish or expand perinatal quality collaboratives that engage hospitals in evidence-based and data-driven quality improvement projects aimed at improving perinatal care and outcomes for pregnant women and newborns. Both States implemented systems-level changes and reported improved outcomes for several quality measures.

AHRQ is leading the national evaluation of the CHIPRA Quality Demonstration Program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services funds the evaluation.
