Perinatal Programs

California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC), California Children's Services High Risk Infant Follow-up, and California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC)


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.
