What is the program?

The Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) cooperative agreement improves women’s health and maternal health outcomes by addressing the quality and safety of maternity care is an important facet in the health care paradigm.

Through AIM, we seek to reduce maternal deaths and severe maternal morbidity by engaging provider organizations, state-based health and public health systems, consumer groups, and other stakeholders within a national partnership to assist state-based teams in implementing evidence-based maternal safety bundles.

Maternal safety bundles are a set of small straightforward evidence-based practices, that when used collectively and reliably in the delivery setting, have improved patient outcomes and reduced maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity.

Funding for this cooperative agreement will support the awardee’s ability to conduct the following activities:

  1. Leading a national partnership of organizations focused on reducing maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity by facilitating multidisciplinary collaborations;
  2. Directing widespread implementation and adoption of the maternal safety bundles through collaborative state-based teams; and,
  3. Collecting and analyzing process, structure and outcome data to drive continuous improvement in the implementation of safety bundles by state-based teams, through a continuous quality improvement framework.
