About Us

Welcome to the home page for NeoQIC, the Neonatal Quality Improvement Collaborative of Massachusetts. We are a voluntary organization of newborn health care providers in Massachusetts, committed to improving the outcomes of mothers and newborns throughout the state through the open sharing of practices and data.

ACTIVE IMPROVEMENT INITIATIVES

NeoQIC is proud to support three ongoing collaborative quality improvement initiatives: 
1. Increasing the use of mother's own milk in very low birth weight infants;
2. Increasing safe sleep practices in high risk infants; and
3. Improving the care of infants and families impacted by perinatal substance use and neonatal abstinence syndrome.

A fourth initiative will be launched shortly focused on nosocomial infections and antibiotic utilization in neonatal intensive care units.  This will be re-launch of the earlier NeoQIC NICU CLABSI initiative.
