National Perinatal Information Center

National Perinatal Information Center/Quality Analytic Services (NPIC/QAS) is a non-profit organization which began in 1985 with a charter membership of major perinatal centers across the United States. Since that time it has become recognized as an invaluable information and research resource to the health care community. NPIC/QAS has expertise in the analysis
of large data sets, development of comparative benchmarking quality and utilization
reports and evaluation of direct
service programs.
