Updated perinatal care performance measures

The Joint Commission extended the mandatory reporting of the Perinatal Care (PC) performance measure set from 1,100 births per year to a minimum of 300 births per year. All accredited hospitals will need to report on all five measures in the PC measure set. This change applies to over 80% of accredited hospitals with labor and delivery units.

While these changes are effective January 1, 2016, hospitals that meet these new requirements are encouraged to begin using the new PC set as soon as possible.
