39-Weeks Dissemination & Birth Registry Accuracy Project
Ohio has received national recognition from the March of Dimes, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) , as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for this work. Due to this success, OPQC received continued funding to spread this project to the remaining ~80 hospitals in Ohio that offer maternity services. This is especially important since CMS has ruled that hospitals will soon be required to report scheduled deliveries prior to 39 weeks (called Early Elective Deliveries).
