To support hospitals in their effort to improve maternal health and behavioral health, DOH is running a succession of data-driven Learning Collaboratives. Each Collaborative will teach evidence-based best practices, provide a forum for peer-to-peer learning, and offer improvement coaching for frontline care teams. Participating in a Collaborative can accelerate work that is underway and help teams tackle new challenges to achieve meaningful progress over time.

The MLC started in October 2022.
