Premier applauds the passage of H.R. 4387, the “Maternal Health Quality Improvement Act of 2021,” through the Health Energy and Commerce committee.
Premier and our member hospitals and health systems have worked for more than a decade to improve quality of care for mothers and babies. We have made great strides in that work. We will be building on that progress in our work with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Women’s Health (OWH) to establish a data driven collaborative with more than 200 hospitals across the nation. This will inform quality improvement practices for the nation. The Maternal Health Quality Improvement Act of 2021 will provide a means to further scale this work to all hospitals across the nation.
