• Equity of Care

Maternal Health Action Network

The North Carolina Healthcare Foundation is convening a Maternal Health Action Network (MHAN) to encourage shared learning and implementation of evidence-based performance improvement strategies that address maternal health disparities. Through alignment with national models which drive development of a whole-person approach to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care such as the CMS Framework for Health Equity 2022-2032, Transforming Maternal Health (TMaH) Model, and the federal Action Plan to Improve Maternal Health in America, which are in lock-step with new equity related regulatory standards, this Action Network strives to support hospitals in their ongoing work to improve maternal health outcomes across North Carolina.  Register here.
