    NPQIC has truly been a leader in helping every Nebraska mom and baby have a great start. I am honored to have worked with NPQIC since its inception, and I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the future!

Our Impact

Since its inception in 2015, NPQIC has led multiple statewide efforts to implement evidence-based clinical practices and quality improvement initiatives to reduce maternal and infant morbidity and mortality as well as eliminate inequities in perinatal healthcare. NPQIC has successfully enrolled all 47 birthing facilities in the State of Nebraska as member hospitals.

The 2023 NPQIC Fall Summit "Upstream Solutions to Maternal Health Equity" will provide a foundational understanding of the current Black maternal health crisis and the landscape of Black maternal health in Nebraska. Sessions will equip healthcare teams with the most up-to-date practices around severe maternal morbidities, trauma-informed care, and chronic conditions and substance use in pregnancy. Providing evidence-based and equitable care to marginalized populations is critical for improving pregnancy health outcomes in NE.
