Obstetrics Initiative (OBI) Hospitals:
Michigan maternity hospitals in the Initiative have a shared commitment to improve birth practices and outcomes for moms and babies. OBI hospitals will work with the OBI multi-disciplinary team of quality improvement maternity experts to identify areas of improvement, engage with peers, and track process and outcome measures. OBI will work with hospitals to develop and implement consistent and standardized approaches to care.
Each participating maternity hospital must:
A. Complete the OBI participation agreement by February 1, 2019 to officially join the Obstetrics Initiative.
B. Work closely with the OBI Coordinating Center and the other participating Michigan maternity hospitals to develop a quality improvement program to advance collaborative-wide performance using feedback from OBI registry data.
C. Collaborate with other participating sites in overall process improvement essential to the success of the program, including sharing of and learning from best practices.
