The Pregnancy Medical Home program aims to improve the quality of maternity care, improve outcomes for mothers and babies, and reduce medical care costs.
As a pregnancy medical home, obstetrical care providers are supported by the NC Division of Medical Assistance, the NC Division of Public Health and Community Care of North Carolina partnership to increase access to care and improve birth outcomes for pregnant Medicaid recipients.
Our network has an OB physician champion and an OB nurse coordinator responsible for recruiting and supporting practices.
The Pregnancy Medical Home program is an outcome-driven initiative monitored for specific performance standards. By participating, maternity care providers receive financial incentives for risk screenings and evaluations, as well as ongoing support from a pregnancy care manager and tour network. In turn, practices agree to work toward quality improvement goals, including reducing elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks, performing standardized initial risk screening, using 17P to prevent recurrent preterm birth, reducing primary c-section rates and collaborating with pregnancy care management programs to serve high-risk patients.
