Overview

The Kentucky Perinatal Quality Collaborative (KyPQC) celebrated their official launch on October 22, 2019, at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The launch meeting was a huge success and was well attended with representation from healthcare professionals, delivery hospitals, insurers, advocacy groups, national organizations, and other stakeholders dedicated to improving maternal and infant health outcomes throughout the Commonwealth. During the launch, attendees expressed interest in participating in one of three workgroups (Obstetrics, Neonatology, and Data & Analytics); and shortly after a steering committee was created to ensure that the workgroup initiatives align with the KyPQC vision and mission.

KyPQC is hosting a second Fall annual meeting to heighten enthusiasm of current partners and stakeholders and to create buy-in from new partners whose values align with the KyPQC's Vision of making Kentucky a great place for every woman to have a baby and a great place for every baby to be born! Participants will hear from national speakers and other states with successful Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) to learn how instrumental a statewide PQC is in improving the quality of care during pregnancy, delivery, and throughout the first year of life.

Due to the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 Fall KyPQC Annual Meeting will be held virtually utilizing a Zoom Meeting platform in place of conducting a face-to-face conference. This virtual meeting will provide an opportunity for learners across Kentucky to attend this important event as well as learners from outside the state. The Zoom Meeting platform allows for multiple breakout sessions, group discussions, and virtual networking opportunities for attendees.
