The Institute for Medicaid Innovation has released a new report, Innovation in Perinatal and Child Health in Medicaid, featuring the UWPRC Core Research Project (CRP) led by Drs. Roseanne Clark and Jane Mahoney.

The report informs renewed urgency to address birth equity and prioritize pregnant and postpartum people, children, and families within Medicaid. Profiles of 17 innovative initiatives derived from a national review of practices and policies implemented to effectively leverage Medicaid to improve prenatal, perinatal, neonatal, and 12-month postpartum outcomes are highlighted in the report, including the UWPRC CRP Addressing Postpartum Depression in Wisconsin Home Visiting Programs.

The reported initiatives suggest clinical, research, and policy opportunities to support sustainability and expansion, providing an agenda for future actions to establish strategic investment priorities centered on pregnant and birthing people, their children, and their families.
