Northeastern Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative
The Northeastern Pennsylvania Perinatal Quality Collaborative (NEPaPQC) seeks to engage key stakeholders in a collaborative effort to ensure all mothers and babies in Northeastern Pennsylvania receive quality, evidence-based perinatal and neonatal care.
What is a Perinatal Quality Collaborative?
Perinatal quality collaboratives (PQCs) are state or multi-state networks of teams working to improve the quality of care for mothers and babies. PQC members identify health care processes that need to be improved and use the best available methods to make changes as quickly as possible.
Serving Northeastern PA
The Northeastern region of Pennsylvania includes the 22 blue colored counties (Tioga, Bradford, Susquehanna, Wayne, Lackawanna, Wyoming, Sullivan, Lycoming, Clinton, Centre, Mifflin, Juniata, Union, Snyder, Montour, Northumberland, Columbia, Luzerne, Pike, Monroe, Carbon, and Schuylkill).
If you would like to know if your hospital or practice is part of our PQC, see the PQC Site section for all currently participating sites.
If your hospital or practice is outside of the blue-colored counties and you are interested in learning more about Pennsylvania’s state-wide PQC (affiliate of NEPaPQC), click here.
Engaging Key Stakeholders
The NEPaPQC seeks to engage all key stakeholders involved in maternal and neonatal care. Key stakeholders include Medicaid and private payers, state and regional representatives to related organizations (e.g., March of Dimes, ACOG, AWHONN, AAFP, etc.), public health representatives, and patients/families.
