A CMS mailing-list email, which I thought might be of interest to some of the MDC readership.
Strong Start for Mothers and Newborns is an initiative to reduce early elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks and to offer enhanced prenatal care to decrease preterm births.
On Wednesday, November 28th, the CMS Innovation Center will be holding a webinar to discuss the importance reducing early elective deliveries has on improving the health of mothers and newborns across the country. Expert speakers will share some best practices on how to reduce early elective deliveries. Individuals representing the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the March of Dimes, providers and payers will convey examples of successes and how reducing early elective deliveries can be accomplished. We invite all interested providers and payers to attend this event.
