Date: 01/12/21
Time: On Demand

Difficulty: Intermediate

Overview: As health care transitions to value-driven models and the global pandemic highlights the importance of a strong public health system that addresses the needs of vulnerable populations, issues in women’s health, including perinatal care, are pressing concerns for hospitals, health systems, physicians, and those they serve. Causes of morbidity and mortality for women, expectant mothers, and babies are complex and include lack of consistent access to comprehensive care and persistent racial and economic disparities in health and health care.  During this pandemic, vulnerable populations, including pregnant women, new mothers and their babies, and women who are caretakers, face heighted risk due to the social, economic and clinical complexities of managing the spread and treatment of infectious disease. This session will provide an overview of recent legislative and regulatory actions and proposals, how they may develop, and what they may mean for providers and patients in this time of pandemic.
