Patient Safety Collaboration
The NQF-convened Maternity Action Team developed the Playbook for the Successful Elimination of Early Elective Deliveries – or simply the "Playbook" – a document providing guidance and strategies for those still struggling to reduce their rates of early elective deliveries (EEDs). With the action team's focus on improving the health of mothers and babies through a model of sharing best practices and aligning public- and private-sector patient safety efforts, the Playbook offers support to all who are practicing and delivering care, and provides specific guidance for hospitals and hospital systems facing various barriers and challenges in their quality improvement (QI) efforts.
