Population: Medical & Public Health Professionals Infant Women & Maternal
Topic Area: Access to Quality Healthcare Data Assessment & Evaluation
Recommendation Tools to Align Fatality Review Programs to Improve Maternal and Infant Health Outcomes was developed to improve how local Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) recommendations are written, collected, sorted, and elevated to local and state Maternal and Child Health (MCH) leaders in order to increase the likelihood that actions can be taken to improve systems for women, infants, and families. As a result of completing an improvement process called “lean” or lean process improvement (LPI), the Michigan FIMR network developed the following tools and resources: 1) FIMR Health Equity Toolkit; 2) FIMR Interview Guide; 3) FIMR Case Review Team Recommendation Form; 4) Log of Local FIMR Recommendations; 5) Local and State Data Sources for FIMR Case Abstraction; and 6) FIMR Community Action Team Roles & Responsibilities document.
