This meeting included a panel discussion on provider reimbursement and payer systems. There was also a presentation on the ethical dilemmas and decision making in neonatal intensive care units, and a presentation on improving perinatal data.
The Committee selected their top priority issues and three subcommittees were formed to research those issues: Funding and Financing, Eliminating Health Disparities, and Clinical and Public Health Practice. Each subcommittee presented a report of their agenda and defined their areas of focus before the Committee.
