The PA PQC was created in 2019 when over 140 people from all the regions of the Commonwealth worked together to standup the PA PQC through an Advisory Group and a series of work groups on maternal OUD, NAS, and maternal mortality. The members represented State agencies, providers, health system associations, provider associations, health plans, community-based organizations, researchers, foundations, quality improvement collaboratives, and advocates. To position the PA PQC to expand its focus from OUD to Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and from NAS to Substance-Exposed Newborns (SEN), the PA PQC is re-convening statewide Advisory and Work Groups to update its Driver Diagrams and quality measures for maternal SUD and SEN.
