Project Overview:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) contracted the Yale New Haven Health Services Corporation – Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE) to develop, reevaluate, and support the implementation of several maternal health measures and the expansion of CMS’ Birthing-Friendly Hospital Designation.
