The Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative (PA PQC) kicked off its launch on April 24, 2019, in Harrisburg, PA, with a focus on reducing maternal mortality and improving care for pregnant and postpartum women and newborns affected by opioids. The April 24 event at the Harrisburg Hilton was the first gathering of healthcare professionals who will work across disciplines to improve maternity care for mothers and infants and to prevent needless mortalities. PQCs are networks of teams working to improve the quality of care for mothers and babies across prenatal, labor/birth, newborn, and postpartum services. They identify processes that need to be improved and quickly adopt best practices to achieve collective aims.
