INFORMING CHANGE IN PERINATAL OUTCOMES
The National Perinatal Information Center is driven by data, collaboration and research to strengthen, connect and empower our shared purpose of improving patient care. With improved outcomes, the other metrics of success can fall into alignment, with improvement in one area leading to improvement in others.
How we translate data to drive improvement and value
For over 30 years, NPIC has worked with hospitals, patient safety organizations, insurers and researchers to collect and interpret the data that drives better outcomes for mothers and newborns. When data is translated into useful information, the opportunity to transform quantitative data into qualitative improvements becomes a reality.
