National Voluntary Consensus Standards for Perinatal Care 2008
This NQF project presents 17 consensus standards addressing care received during the last trimester of pregnancy through hospital discharge for both mother and newborn. The consensus standards address care provided by both individual clinicians (i.e., physicians and midwives) and facilities, including both hospitals and freestanding birthing centers. These standards reflect aspects of care—both processes and outcomes—that can be substantially influenced by provider performance. Four of the five measures previously endorsed by NQF have been retired and replaced by this measure set.
