Colorado Perinatal Care Quality Collaborative (CPCQC) is Colorado's maternal and infant care quality network. We work with healthcare facilities, community groups and families here in Colorado as well as national partners to advance best practices and improve outcomes in maternal and infant health.
The Colorado Perinatal Care Council (CPCC) was established to provide broad-based leadership in planning and coordinating statewide perinatal health care delivery.
We were founded by Governor Richard Lamm in response to a recommendation in the 1975 Colorado Health Systems Plan Framework developed by the Colorado Department of Health. Planning for the Council began in January 1976 and it has been operational since April of that year.
In March 2015, CPCC began the transition to a Perinatal Quality Collaborative [PQC] and changed its name to the Colorado Perinatal Care Quality Collaborative [CPCQC] to more accurately reflect
"I am so proud of the work our physicians and nurses at Vail Health are doing as we participate in SOAR. Being a part of this project with other Colorado hospitals has given us the support and spirit to invigorate the work we do at Vail Health. For the past three months, the cesarean rate for our first-time, low-risk mothers has been below 13%. We are making a significant difference in the lives of families in our community, helping to prevent maternal morbidity and mortality."
