Quality measures in high-risk pregnancies: Executive Summary of a Cooperative Workshop of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Providers perceive current obstetric quality measures as imperfect and insufficient. Our organizations convened a "Quality Measures in High-Risk Pregnancies Workshop." The goals were to (1) review the current landscape regarding quality measures in obstetric conditions with increased risk for adverse maternal or fetal outcomes, (2) evaluate the available evidence for management of common obstetric conditions to identify those that may drive the highest impact on outcomes, quality, and value, (3) propose measures for high-risk obstetric conditions that reflect enhanced quality and efficiency, and (4) identify current research gaps, improve methods of data collection, and recommend means of change.
