Early Elective Deliveries Meeting

FHA Hospital Engagement Network held a kick-off meeting for Florida hospitals seeking to reduce Ear;y Elective Delivery (EED) rates. Presentations from the meeting are posted below.

Babies born before 39 weeks, unless medically necessary, face increased health risks. Reducing EED to 3 percent or less by December 2013 is a priority focus area for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The FHA Hospital Engagement Network is working in partnership with the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative and the University of South Florida on this statewide initiative.
