New York State Obstetric Hemorrhage Toolkit
The goal of the NYS Obstetric Hemorrhage Project was to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality statewide by translating evidence-based guidelines into clinical practice to improve the assessment for and management of obstetric hemorrhage. This quality improvement collaborative engaged teams from 83 NYS birthing hospitals from diverse geographic areas and included: 17 Regional Perinatal Centers (RPCs); 23 Level III birthing hospitals; 18 Level II birthing hospitals; and 25 Level I birthing hospitals. These teams, in partnership with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) District II’s Safe Motherhood Initiative (SMI), Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) and Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA), with support from the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) and other stakeholders, worked together to implement interventions to improve obstetric outcomes.
This resource was developed by the New York State Department of Health. NICHQ supports the NYSDOH in a variety of maternal and child health collaboratives.
