Perinatal Care Early Elective Delivery Data

$79 / year

This dataset contains different Perinatal Care Early Elective Delivery Data for years 2014 and 2015 from Quality Based Reimbursement (QBR) Program for hospitals in Maryland. It includes Hospital ID, Hospital Name, Perinatal Care Score, Patient Sample and time period covered by the data collected.


Maryland’s Quality-Based Reimbursement (QBR) program is in place since July 2009, it uses similar measures with the federal Medicare Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) program, which is in place since October 2012. Because of Maryland’s long-standing Medicare waiver for its all-payer hospital rate-setting system and the implementation of the QBR program, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has given Maryland various special considerations, including annual exemption from the Medicare VBP program. The QBR program incentivizes quality improvement across a wide variety of quality measurement domains, including:
– Person and Community Engagement
– Clinical Care
– Patient Safety

This dataset is about patients with early elective deliveries prior to 39 weeks of completed gestation. Dorchester is not included in this dataset.
