At its core, the initiative is a health equity effort that strives to address troubling disparities in birth outcomes and examine how care might be reliably tailored to mothers with different needs. The collaborative will focus three different areas.
“To participate in a collaborative of this scale will be significant for both Methodist Fremont Health and Methodist Women’s Hospital,” said Melinda Kentfield, vice president of patient services for Methodist Fremont Health. While Methodist Fremont Health has been participating in the collaborative since 2017, this will mark the first year for Methodist Women’s Hospital.
“As a regional leader in perinatal care, we’re constantly striving to improve outcomes for our moms and babies. To be part of and have access to this level of data will be imperative to us as we continue providing the highest level of care to moms, babies and families in our communities,” Kentfield said in a news release. The perinatal improvement collaborative will test interventions and protocols to reduce preventable deaths and complications among mothers and their babies.
This will be used to investigate the outcomes of mothers and babies individually, as well as grouped, to understand how outcomes between the two are directly linked. Methodist states that this data will help improve data quality and enhance evaluation and research of pregnancy on overall population health. The second is to examine this information with a broader lens.
Methodist states that this integrated data will help paint a complete picture of the patient and circumstances surrounding clinical care to improve measurement and comparisons across geographies and populations. The first is sharing data, which involves up-to-date standardized data being collaboratively integrated. This means collaboratively sharing records and factors like cost and utilization, electronic health records, and social determinants.
