Health outcomes and equity for all women and infants in Wisconsin

Who We Are

The Wisconsin Perinatal Quality Collaborative (WisPQC) focuses on the perinatal period–the time prior to pregnancy and through the first year of the infant’s life. The Collaborative offers opportunities for stakeholders to engage in quality improvement that can improve perinatal outcomes.

Our Initiatives

Opioids: Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)/Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS)

WisPQC’s NAS/NOWS initiative will begin in January 2019. The initiative will focus on improving identification of infants at risk for NAS/NOWS and standardizing care. For questions, contact WAPC staff by email at [email protected] or by phone (608) 285-5858.
The pilot for WisPQC’s NAS/NOWS initiative has begun.

Human Milk Feeding (2017)

The goal of our initiative is to have as many babies as possible receive human milk. The measures for the initiative are being finalized and will cover the spectrum of perinatal care.

Maternal Hypertension (2015)

Hypertension is a common medical disorder in pregnancy in the United States. This initiative helped increase the number of providers who use evidence-based protocols for screening and managing women with hypertension.
