Have you ever needed to obtain data quickly on the health of mothers and babies in SC? The SC BOI Data Team releases statewide reports at least twice a year to help track statewide progress on key maternal and infant health measures. This month’s report is a companion document to the newly released SC BOI interactive report online dashboard, which provides authorized hospital staff with important data to facilitate data-driven collaborative decisions to improve the clinical outcomes of mothers and babies in SC. The data in this report represents the linkage of UB-04, birth, and Medicaid recipient records.
Among the report's contents are:
- a summary of state-level aggregated information provided to hospitals via the dashboard, which provides maternal and newborn characteristics and quality measures that include several new characteristics including plurality; parity; newborn length of stay; newborn hospital charges; and maternal age, race, and residence as well as previously reported SC BOI outcomes; and
- statistical testing results that identify whether perinatal level or statewide newborn and maternal health quality measures are increasing or decreasing over time.
Interested in reviewing additional data? Visit the newly released Statewide SC BOI dynamic dashboard that will allow you to (a) further explore these data by specific demographic characteristics and (b) connect data to quality improvement tips, resource information, maps, and outcome results for the new Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) initiative.
