The Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s perinatal community has led the way in developing key metrics and safety strategies designed to improve the quality of care we provide to mothers and babies. Bundling care processes is one key component adopted and utilized in the community setting; profound results have emerged from this project work. Sue Gullo, RN, BSN, MS and Director of IHI provides an overview of the project work and shares various evidence-based strategies which build an infrastructure of safety and result in a high-performing unit. BETA sponsored IHI teams share their journey offering tips and tools. A Call for Participation for BETA co-sponsored team involvement closes the session.
