Product Description

Hospitals participating in JCR’s Partnership for Patients Hospital Engagement Network (HEN) are well on their way to reducing Early Elective Deliveries (EED). An EED is a scheduled delivery of a fetus less than 39 weeks of completed gestation without medical indication and prior to the onset of natural labor. Usually, these are deliveries of convenience.

The national goal set by Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center, as part of its Partnership for Patients Initiative, is to decrease the preventable hospital-acquired event of EED by 40% from baseline. Three quarters of JCR’s HEN hospitals who offer obstetrics have already met or exceeded this number.
