Maternal and Child Health

Maternal and Child Health

Maternal, infant, and child health outcomes are central to both the current and future health of Ohio. To address health care challenges and improve health outcomes for these populations, the State of Ohio has partnered with GRC to implement research and quality improvement programs across the state. Key areas of focus include identifying and testing effective models of care for treating pregnant women, improving perinatal health through quality improvement initiatives aimed at increasing compliance with evidence-based best practices, and  increasing postpartum visit rates and type 2 diabetes screenings for women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus.
