Abstract

Creating change at scale within a short time frame poses multiple challenges. Using the experience of the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative, the authors illustrate how state perinatal quality collaboratives have been able to achieve this goal using a series of key steps: engage as many disciplines and partner organizations as possible; mobilize low-burden data to create a rapid-cycle data center to support the quality improvement efforts; provide up-to-date guidance for implementation using safety bundles and tool kits; and make available coaching and peer learning to support implementation through multihospital quality collaboratives. There are now multiple national resources available to support these efforts.
