Improving Connection to Services and Care Coordination for Pregnant and Postpartum Women
Our Goal: To support efforts to address the problem of maternal mortality and disparities in maternal mortality rates as a public health crisis in New Jersey and to make New Jersey the safest place in the US to have a baby.
Project Description: This project is part of the national Merck for Mothers Safer Childbirth Cities Initiative (SCCI), with ten cities across the country participating. The two-year grant to the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers seeks to strengthen the Coalition’s citywide data infrastructure to better identify and monitor women and patients at risk of adverse birth outcomes. The Coalition will also work to coordinate care and available services on behalf of patients.
About the Grantee: The Camden Coalition of Health Care Providers (CCHP) is a collaborative partnership that uses innovative, data-driven strategies to improve the quality, capacity, accessibility, and coordination of healthcare services for vulnerable populations in Camden. CCHP engages the entire healthcare community in clinical redesign and care coordination activities informed by real-time and longitudinal data analyses that result in better care at lower cost.
