Substance Exposed Newborns

Improving the Care of Substance-Exposed Newborns and their Families
 
The Neonatal Quality Improvement Collaborative of Massachusetts (NeoQIC) and the Massachusetts Perinatal Quality Collaborative (MPQC) are excited to launch a joint statewide quality improvement initiative focused on improving the care of infants and families impacted by perinatal opioid use and neonatal abstinence syndrome.  This initiative builds upon years of past improvement work by NeoQIC, MPQC, and hospitals throughout the state, and relies on close collaborations with many state organizations, including the Department of Public Health, the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services, the Department of Children and Families, Early Intervention, and the Health Policy Commission.  

This initiative was formally launched in January 2017.  It will be built around multi-disciplinary hospital-based improvement teams, and will rely on the open sharing of practices and data to improve care throughout the state.  All hospitals that care for mothers or newborns are invited to participate.

Project documents, including the project overview, and upcoming events are listed below.  For more information, please contact Munish Gupta (mgupta@bidmc.harvard.edu) or Ron Iverson (ronald.iverson@bmc.org).
