Making Maryland a Safer Place to Have a Baby


is for Moms

Maryland’s Perinatal-Neonatal Quality Care Collaborative (MDPQC) is a network of perinatal care providers and public health professionals working to improve health outcomes for women and newborns through continuous quality improvement. The Collaborative provides participating birthing hospitals with educational resources, technical assistance and a platform for communication and sharing best practices. If you would like more information, please contact Katie Richards, collaborative coordinator, at

What Our Partners Have to Say

"Through participation in the MDPQC collaboratives, we have been able to better focus on important quality measures, such as timely treatment for severe hypertension and achieve lasting improvements for our patients and families. Benchmarking with other facilities in the collaborative and sharing best practices and ideas are invaluable to the improvement process. The MDPQC requirement to stratify our data by race inspired us to do the same for other QI projects, which led to the creation of an equity dashboard at our facility."

"I am looking forward to the upcoming maternal and neonatal collaboratives. Our postpartum hemorrhage management is good, but even after our first meeting with MDPQC, I learned how we can make it even better. We also want to revise our hypoglycemia policy for our newborns, and we are excited to work with others for the best possible outcomes."
