Improving the Care of Opioid-Exposed Newborns and their Families:  A PNQIN Initiative  

The Neonatal Quality Improvement Collaborative of Massachusetts (NeoQIC) and the Massachusetts Perinatal Quality Collaborative (MPQC) are excited to support a statewide quality improvement initiative focused on improving the care of infants and families impacted by perinatal opioid use and neonatal abstinence syndrome.  Building upon years of past work by hospitals and organizations throughout the state, this initiative was formally launched in January 2017 and relies on close collaborations with many state partners, including the Department of Public Health, the Bureau of Substance Addiction Services, the Department of Children and Families, Early Intervention, and the Health Policy Commission.  


All hospitals that care for mothers or newborns are invited to participate. Please see the drop down menu below to access more information on the various components of our project.
