The Maternity Improvement Group

Maternity Service Improvement Group

The aim of the Maternity Improvement Group is to champion improved outcomes for women and babies, through the use of operational and clinical data to focus on evidence based activities designed to reduce complications, increase service efficiency and enable woman and family centred care.  

Many maternity services will have been impacted by COVID 19 challenge. Many were forced to fast track changes to their services in order to maintain optimal outcomes for women and babies receiving care. We heard about many in our 2020 webinar series.  

The 2021 Maternity data will provide you with a great opportunity to explore the impact of COVID challenges on your maternity service. 

The Maternity Improvement Group promotes networking between Australian and New Zealand Hospitals to explore and implement service improvement activities that both streamline services for women and minimise interventions safely where possible.   

What do you need to do in preparation for your 2021 membership? 

  • Designate a maternity liaison representative to act as a key contact with the Maternity Improvement Group Programme Manager.  

  • Participate in the design of the 2021 Maternity INSIGHTS Data platform. 

  • Organise staff from your service to participate in the annual Improvement Group collaborative activities.  

  • Identify one innovation from your service to present to colleagues during this process. 

  • Work with colleagues to identify one potential service improvement to explore for 2022. 

What does The Health Roundtable do? 

  • Provides interactive INSIGHTS data displays using data extracted from the inpatient episode collection, highlighting trends and differences in performance. 

  • Supports the development of 'ad hoc' reports for members, on specific sets of indicators. 

  • Enables the development of customised benchmarking reports.  

  • Works with key maternity contacts to organise an annual collaborative activity. 

  • Undertakes an annual survey of members to identify key issues to be discussed in the workshop 

  • Provides phone and webcast support to all members to assist with data interpretation. 

Our 2020 webinar theme was 'Exploring effective care for women identified as 'at risk' during their pregnancy'. The videos are now available for members to view though the 'Imorve Performance' tab on this website and the 'Maternity link'.
