Outreach Education and Consultation
Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program
The Mid-Coastal California Perinatal Outreach Program (MCCPOP) is located in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Neonatal and Developmental Medicine at Stanford University.
California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC), California Children's Services High Risk Infant Follow-up, and California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC)
- California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) is a group of private and public California healthcare professionals committed to improving care and outcomes for the State's pregnant mothers and newborns.
- California Children's Services High Risk Infant Follow-up (CCS HRIF) was developed in collaboration with California Children’s Services to identify quality improvement opportunities for NICUs in the reduction of long term morbidity and the support of real-time case management of high-risk infants through 3 years of age.
- California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC) is devoted to eliminating preventable maternal death and injury and promoting equitable maternity care in California by bringing resources, tools, measures, and quality improvement techniques to providers, administrators, and public health leaders.
Stanford serves as a central data repository for perinatal information for the state of California collected through CPQCC and CMQCC. Our faculty and staff also lead statewide and national quality improvement activities.
Regional Perinatal Programs of California (RPPC)
The Regional Perinatal Programs of California (RPPC), founded in 1979, evolved from the need for comprehensive, cooperative networks of public and private health care providers within geographic areas to promote the well-being of pregnant women and their babies and ensure access to appropriate levels of high quality care. Stanford has held a state award as a grantee of the Regional Perinatal Programs of California for over 30 years. Our network has now expanded to include most of northern California.
California Perinatal Transport System (CPeTS)
Established in 1976, the California Perinatal Transport System (CPeTS) manages a dispatch service to facilitate the transport of critically ill infants and mothers with high risk conditions to regional Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) and Perinatal High Risk Units (PHRUs). CPeTS collects and analyzes perinatal and neonatal transport data for the development of outreach programs. Opportunities for problem solving among members of regional perinatal programs is provided through Advisory Committee meetings.
