Ohio FQHC Infant Vitality Initiative

 

The Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative (OPQC) partnered with Cicatelli Associates Inc (CAI), the Ohio Association of Community Health Centers (OACHC) the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) and the Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center (GRC) to implement the Ohio FQHC Infant Vitality Initiative.  The aim of this initiative was to improve infant vitality and maternal health by empowering women with information and services to optimize timing and spacing of their pregnancies.  The project involved five (5) FQHC networks and improved client-centered care by training teams on evidence-based clinical practices, long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) stocking and financing, workflow, and contraceptive counseling.
