According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are more than 50,000 severe maternal morbidity (SMM) events per year and the number is increasing. Complications mean a poor experience for the mother, a possible adverse impact on the infant and future risk to both. Births with complications are also more expensive than deliveries without complications, even before factoring in any potential mid-or long-term issues. Understanding maternal complications (including SMM) is foundational for maternal quality improvement programs.
1 in 6 Medicaid-insured mothers experience a SMM event during or after childbirth
1 in 7 commercially insured mothers experience a SMM event during or after childbirth
Providers need to create quality programs for maternal morbidity that are efficient, effective and equitable
Serious racial health inequities exist in maternal outcomes
3M Health Information Systems offers 3M™ Severe Maternal Morbidity, an integrated solution to help organizations identify and trend risk-adjusted maternal outcomes. It provides an approach to review facility or network care pathway views of all preventable complications, not just the SMM complications as defined by the CDC. These insights support the development of maternal morbidity action plans across sites of maternal care and throughout the course of pregnancy and the postpartum period. This solution enables performance monitoring by facility, health plan or provider group and allows for identification of those sites of care for performance learning or improvement.
