About Us

CMQCC's Underlying Assumptions:

  • Clinicians deeply care about providing high quality maternity care, but…
      > Their time and resources are limited
      > Leadership is often missing
      > There is little ability to compare one’s practices and outcomes

  • Opportunities for improvement are there:
      > California’s maternity outcomes are not what they should be
      > Practice variation among hospitals and physicians is quite large
      > Evidence-based research is available as a model for improvement

  • Transformation (change) is not easy/ Champions are required
      > Encouragement is required at both State and local levels
      > Champions need support, access to data, training/role models
      > We need to be in it for the long haul

  • Collaboration is critical for our success
      > Maximizes our resources of time, money and knowledge
      > Increases peer support and peer learning
      > Creates synergy and increased capacity
        – “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”
