Cluster randomized trial of a pre/interconception health intervention for mothers in pediatric visits.
Recognizing that pediatric primary care focuses on family health and is an important location of contact for women of childbearing age, this project assessed the effectiveness of a pre/interconception women's health intervention delivered during pediatric primary care using a cluster randomized trial. The investigators concluded that pediatric visits are an opportune location for addressing maternal health. They indicated that this intervention demonstrated feasibility and improved outcomes for some but not all outcome.

Effect of the Medicaid primary care rate increase on prenatal care utilization among Medicaid-insured women.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the 2013-2014 ACA Medicaid Primary Care Rate Increase on Medicaid-insured women's prenatal care utilization, overall and by race and ethnicity. The investigators concluded that the Medicaid "fee bump" improved prenatal care utilization for non-Hispanic Black and White women. They suggest that policymakers may consider reinstating higher Medicaid reimbursements to improve access to care for disadvantaged populations.

Increasing discussion rates of incontinence in primary care: a randomized controlled trial.
The study’s aim was to evaluate whether the use of an electronic pelvic floor assessment questionnaire (ePAQ-PF) improves communication about incontinence in primary care. It found that use of the ePAQ-PF prior to clinic visits increases discussion of urinary and fecal incontinence, particularly clinician-initiated discussion.
