28 Aug WEBINAR: Maternal Health Hub – Promoting Equity and Value in Maternity Care
September, 21st, 2020 | 3:00-4:00pm ET
Join an upcoming webinar hosted by the Health Care Transformation Task Force to learn about the launch of the Maternal Health Hub and find out how to get involved in the Learning Community! The Maternal Health Hub compiles resources and best practices to advance a vision for high-value and equitable maternity care and serves as a forum for all maternal health stakeholders – including providers, payers, patient advocates, purchasers, community-based organizations, policymakers and others – that are committed to advancing high-value maternity care by sharing their experience, best practices, and challenges with others.
This kick-off of the learning community will share findings from a recently published report, Promoting Equity and Value in Maternity Care, which describes why equity must be treated as a central value, on par with other key values such as quality and cost, in any value-based models for maternity care. The report offers a framework for change with promising interventions and improvement strategies to achieve meaningful change by marrying a value-based system with a culture of health equity and enabling public policies.
