What We Do
NPQIC seeks to improve the delivery of and access to evidence-based and equitable health care for all Nebraska mothers and newborns.
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.
