When a health system/hospital invests in a sustainable culture of perinatal safety they are listening to the needs of the community, supporting healthcare providers, and championing public health to ensure fewer complications and healthier outcomes for women and their babies.
As we know, the U.S. is the only developed country with rising mortality and severe morbidity rates in its maternity care system. The World Health Organization estimates that pregnancy complications cost the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $80 billion annually. The liability environment for maternity care is volatile, and hospitals are paying record awards in lawsuits involving preventable maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity. Investment in perinatal safety planning is a decisive protective measure.
With the CDC suggesting that 60% of all maternal deaths in the U.S. are fully preventable, we are confident that we can identify factors associated with severe maternal morbidity and plan for interventions to prevent adverse events. The transformational stretch-goal aim is: Zero Harm.
