2022 Stronger - P158 - Severe Maternal Hypertension and Preeclampsia: A Roadmap to Improvement - On Demand
Many factors have contributed to the rise in U.S. maternal mortality. While the issue has attracted a lot of attention, we’ve seen little substantial improvement. At Atlantic Health System, we approached severe maternal hypertension treatment with engagement, resiliency, accountability, transparency and empowerment across the entire women’s health service line. This led to improved outcomes at both academic and community hospitals — translating to systemwide, sustained improvement. As a result of this housewide collaboration, timeliness to treat severe maternal hypertension improved from 40% in 2018 to over 90% in 2021.
