Program Expands Effort to Build Maternal and Child Health Infrastructure and Capacity in Health Plans

Posted 09/13/11

The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation has launched a new Promising Practices in Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program to recognize emerging and promising programs or policies in MCH, promote program replication and new collaborations, and create a dedicated space where health plans and other MCH leaders can share their success stories with peers.


Through the new project, NIHCM has joined eight other national professional organizations, including the Academy of Pediatrics, the American Bar Association, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, Family Voices, Grantmakers in Health, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, the National Conference of State Legislatures, and the National Governors Association, in helping members make well-informed decisions on matters impacting the health and health care of mothers and children.


On a quarterly basis, one promising practices submission will be selected and highlighted in a fact sheet designed and produced by NIHCM. More information about NIHCM's program, including how to submit a promising practice, is available by clicking here.
