Maternal Health

Childbirth is the number one reason for hospitalization in the US and California. Annually, 500,000 babies are born in the state, and half of those births are paid for by Medi-Cal. Yet there are significant and unwarranted variations in the quality of maternity care, alarming disparities among patient outcomes, and wasted resources. CHCF aims to improve the quality and lower the cost of maternity care in California by reducing unnecessary interventions and delivering appropriate care.
