NPIC/QAS and the March of Dimes have had a long relationship of working together and sharing information with the mutual goal of improving perinatal care for women and children.
In 2010 we entered into a formal collaboration agreement to provide analytic support and data from our Perinatal Center Data Base on topics of keen interest to MOD constituents- families, providers, advocates and policy developers.
Special Care Nursery Admissions Analyses
One of the first analyses from the MOD Perinatal Data Center and the National Perinatal Information Center collaboration, Special Care Nursery Admissions is a descriptive analysis of the frequency, utilization and profile of newborns admitted to a special care nursery. The analysis uses NPIC/QAS member hospital data from 07/01/09 to 06/30/10.

Toward Improving the Outcome of Pregnancy III (TIOP III): Enhancing Perinatal Health Through Quality, Safety & Performance Initiatives
Toward Improving the Outcome of Pregnancy: Enhancing Perinatal Health Through Quality, Safety and Performance Initiatives (TIOP III), published by the March of Dimes, is tool for the enhancement of perinatal health and care.
NPIC/QAS was one of more than 40 experts from a wide variety of organizations, including The March of Dimes, The Joint Commission, and the National Committee for Quality Assurance, whose collaborative effort made TIOP III possible.
Janet Muri, President of NPIC/QAS, was an integral part of the creation of TIOP II as a member of the Advisory Group and Co-Author (Chapter 2: Evolution of Quality Improvement in Perinatal Care). NPIC/QAS Board members Raymond Cox, MD, MBA, Karla Damus, PhD, MSPH, MN, RN, FAAN, and former member George A. Little, MD were also contributing authors.
