1.1 Percent of women ages 18 thru 44 seen at mobile clinic outreach events. (Northern Mariana Islands)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: By 2020, increase the number of women who a complete a preventive visit by 10%.

Numerator: Number of women ages 18 through 44 that are seen during a mobile clinic outreach event.

Denominator: Number of women ages 18 through 44

Significance: Increasing the amount of sites that offer preventive services throughout the CNMI is a strategy towards eliminating barriers to accessing care. Many families in the CNMI either do not own vehicles or face difficulty purchasing fuel. Fuel costs in the CNMI is among the highest in the nation peaking at almost $5.30 per gallon. The CNMI also lacks a fully functioning public transportation system. Bringing the services to clients through the use of non- traditional sites, youth and village centers, other partner program offices, or through the use of a mobile clinic will help to increase the number of women that obtain preventive care.

1.1 Percent of women aged 18-44 who have ever discussed reproductive life planning during a visit with a doctor, nurse, or other health professional (Michigan)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the number of women 18-44 who have contraceptive and other reproductive health needs identified; increase the number of intended pregnancies; and ultimately lead to a reduction in adverse pregnancy-related outcomes

Numerator: Number of female respondents aged 18-44 who indicated ‘Yes’ to having ever discussed pregnancy planning or prevention during a visit with a doctor, nurse, or other health professional

Denominator: Total number of female respondents aged 18-44 who indicated ‘Yes,’ or ‘No'

Significance: Reproductive life planning provides an opportunity for providers to assess patients’ personal goals about pregnancy planning or prevention, opening the door for providers to educate patients on how their reproductive life plan impacts their contraceptive and other reproductive health decision-making, and actively involving patients in developing personal strategies to enhance their reproductive health and wellness (e.g., selecting a contraceptive method that fits well with their life circumstances). Reproductive life planning has the potential to reduce unintended pregnancies, increase the use of highly effective contraception, increase the number of adequately spaced births, and foster healthy pregnancy-related outcomes for mom and baby. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Office of Population Affairs recognize reproductive life planning as a component of quality family planning services, a national standard of care.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data source will be the Michigan Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS). The reproductive life planning variable that will be used to quantify the identified strategy measure was a state-added question to the Michigan BRFS starting in 2015. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is currently in the process of weighting Michigan’s 2015 BRFS data. The final weighted data file will not be available until August 2016. Once available, the proportion of female respondents aged 18-44 who indicated ‘Yes’ to having ever discussed pregnancy planning or prevention during a visit with a doctor, nurse, or other health professional will be used as a baseline and annual targets will be developed for subsequent years. NOTE: Until the BRFS variable and baseline data are available, PRAMS data were used as a proxy measure to set annual objectives. Once available, BRFS baseline data will be used to revise the proxy annual objectives.

1.1 Percent of Title V maternal health participants that received education on continuing their health care coverage. (Iowa)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities related to systems-building

Goal: Increase Title V maternal health participants' knowledge on the topic of continuing their health insurance coverage.

Numerator: New field in WHIS collecting number of women educated about how to get help for how to receive health insurance coverage.

Denominator: Total number of women who receive direct or enabling services from a MH agency

Significance: Health insurance plays an important role because women with insurance are more likely to obtain preventive health care. Women are more vulnerable to loose their coverage as they may depend coverage through their partners job, so if he looses his job or they are divorced or widowed they may have no insurance. Also income eligibility decreases after pregnancy so many women lose Medicaid eligibility 60 days post partum.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Will need to add a field in WHIS (Maternal Health data system) to capture if a maternal health client received education on the topic of continuing health insurance coverage.

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities related to systems-building

Goal: The goal is to increase the number of women who have healthcare coverage and complete a preventive healthcare visit.

Numerator: no. of local health jurisdictions that have a protocol to ensure that all persons referred for insurance enrollment also complete a preventive visit appointment

Denominator: 61 local health jurisdictions

Significance: Having health insurance coverage facilitates entry into the healthcare system.. Lacking health insurance is a barrier to getting preventive services.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Data Source: MCAH Local Health Jurisdiction Annual Progress Report Data Issues: Activities planned as they relate to strategies outlined in the Action Plan focus on the provision of insurance coverage as the principal means for ensuring access to healthcare. The referral protocol to be adopted should at minimum, have the following components: 1) the protocol should include insurance status verification; 2) a plan to assist women to sign –up for health insurance; 3) scheduling a client with a provider for a preventive visit; and, 4) a tracking mechanism,to identify if a client has completed a doctor’s visit

1.1 Percent of infants born to pregnant women receiving prenatal care beginning in the first trimester. (Missouri)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: To increase the number of women receiving prenatal care in the first trimester to enhance pregnancy outcomes.

Numerator: Number of births to women receiving prenatal care in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Denominator: Number of live births to women with known Prenatal Care Status.

Significance: Access to quality health care services during preconception, prenatal, postpartum, and inter-conception phases for women of child bearing age is crucial for reducing adverse perinatal health outcomes. Babies born to mothers who do not receive prenatal care are three times more likely to have a low birth weight and five times more likely to die than babies born to mothers who do get care. Early prenatal care (i.e., care in the first trimester of a pregnancy) allows women and their health care providers to identify and, when possible, treat or correct health problems and health-compromising behaviors that can be particularly damaging during the initial stages of fetal development. Increasing the number of women who receive prenatal care, and who do so early in their pregnancies, can improve birth outcomes and lower health care costs by reducing the likelihood of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Preterm births (births less than 37 weeks of completed gestation) are the leading cause of infant mortality and morbidity in Missouri with significant racial disparities. Overall, two thirds of infant deaths in Missouri were among preterm babies.

1.1 Percent of female clients under 25 years old at Title X clinics receiving chlamydia testing (Massachusetts)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Top level: direct services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the percentage of female clients under 25 years old receiving chlamydia testing, a preventive health service

Numerator: Number of women less than 25 years old who had a chlamydia test at a Title X clinic

Denominator: Number of women less than 25 years old seen at a Title X clinic (regardless of the number of her visits)

Significance: Through Title X clinics and MDPH's Sexual and Reproductive Health Program, MA is promoting the implementation of the 2014 "Providing Quality Family Planning Services: Recommendations of CDC and the U.S. Office of Population Affairs." These recommendations expand family planning to include preconception and other preventive health services. Chlamydia screening is one of the preventive treatment aspects of the CDC's Quality Family Planning Services and is important for preconception health because if left untreated, this STI contributes to tubal infertility. Implementing broad preventive health services in family planning visits is an evidence-based strategy supported by CDC findings.

Data Sources and Data Issues: Annual data are from Title X clinics, reported to MDPH.

1.1 Percent of clients receiving an annual preventative reproductive health exam that receive a PAP test and/or will be current with receiving the recommended PAP screening schedule, as per ACOG and USPSTF Guidelines (Connecticut)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Top level: direct services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: Increase the percent of women with a preventative reproductive health exam who received a PAP test and/or are current with receiving their recommended PAP screening schedule.

Numerator: # of women with a preventative reproductive health exam who received a PAP test and/or are current with receiving their recommended PAP screening schedule

Denominator: Total number of women that received a preventative reproductive health exam

Significance: The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Committee (ACOG) Opinion (2014) states that the annual health assessment should include screening, evaluation and counseling, and immunizations based on age and risk factors and should include a physical examination. The physical examination will include obtaining standard vital signs, determining body mass index, palpating the abdomen and inguinal lymph nodes, and making an assessment of the patient’s overall health. The ACOG guidelines for cervical cytology screening published in May 2009 recommend beginning cervical cancer screening at age 21 years, irrespective of sexual activity of the patient. This is based on the current understanding of human papillomavirus infection in the adolescent patient and the pathophysiology of invasive cervical cancer. The CDC reports that cervical cancer is the easiest gynecologic cancer to prevent, with regular PAP and HPV screening tests and follow- up. The Pap test looks for precancerous cell changes on the cervix that might become cervical cancer if they are not discovered early and treated appropriately. The HPV test looks for the human papilloma virus that can cause these cell changes. Health disparities exist in CT, as they do nationally. At risk populations have higher rates of teen births, STDs, HIV, and chronic disease and often lack access to care. Evidence-based reproductive health services were provided in accordance with national standards, regardless of the patient’s inability to pay. The 12 CT RHS centers are geographically located in the state’s largest cities and areas of high teen birth rates. The services are inclusive, gender neutral and patient friendly.

1.1 Percent of births with less than 18 months spacing between birth and next conception (Hawaii)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 2: Measuring quality of effort (% of reach; satisfaction)

Service Type: Middle level: enabling services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: To support reproductive life planning and healthy birth outcomes by increasing intervals of birth spacing (births spaced from 18 month to next conception).

Numerator: Number of Births with interval < 18 months between birth and next conception

Denominator: Total number of Births

Significance: Research shows that effective contraception can help with birth spacing, reduce the risk of low-weight and premature births, and support a woman’s longer term physical and emotional well-being. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) as among the most effective family planning methods with a pregnancy rate of less than 1 pregnancy per 100 women in the first year. LARC’s intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants are highly effective methods of birth control and can last between 3 and 10 years (depending on the method). Incorporating pregnancy intention screenings in routine and proactive settings where reproductive health age women are likely to be screened every 3 months to a year, regardless of the reason for a women’s visit supports the use of One Key Question®(OKQ) and multiple opportunities for these interventions with discussions that can lead to opportunities for preconception care and contraceptive services.

1.1 Number of women that reported receiving an annual well visit. (District of Columbia)

Measure Status: Active

Measurement Category: Category 1: measuring quantity of effort (counts and "yes/no" activities)

Service Type: Top level: direct services

Service Recipient: Activities directed to families/children/youth

Goal: To increase annual well visits among low income woman. Healthy Start will partner with FQHCs to promote annual well visits among low income women.

Numerator: Number of female DC residents that reported receiving an annual well visit in the last 12 months

Denominator: N/A

Significance: Women comprise 52.7% of the District’s population. Broken down by race, 55% of women in the District are African American, 32% are white and 8% are Hispanic. In 2010, 51.4% of deaths in DC were among females. Heart disease and cancer remain the two leading causes of death among residents (regardless of sex and race) accounting for half of deaths in the District in the last five years. Females were more likely to be obese, physically inactive, have arthritis, asthma, diabetes, depression, COPD, and cancer and require special equipment as a result of a health problem compared to males. While average life expectancy in DC has climbed to a historic high of 77.5 years in 2010, a 10-year gain from the life expectancy in the early 1990’s, disparities persist between gender, race, and ward of residence. Hispanic females are expected to live the longest in the District (88.9 years), while Non-Hispanic black females have a life expectancy of 76.2 years. Residents in Ward 8 are expected to live 69.8 years, versus 85.1 years in Ward 3. Data from the 2014 DC BRFSS revealed that overall 8079.3% of women females over 18 years had a routine pap test checkup within the past three years and 85.1% age 21-65 had a pap test in the past three years. Among 18-34 year old individuals that rate decreases to 69.9%.5 Data for 2012 also indicated that more than three-quarters of women (81.2%) aged 18 and older reported that they received a pap test within the previous three years. Such findings indicate that District women are engaging in some preventive care services, however rates of women accessing prenatal care are lower. Between 2009 and 2012 the percent of infants born to mothers receiving prenatal care beginning in the first trimester decreased from 74.7% to 65.3%; and the percent of women who initiated prenatal care in the third trimester or had no entry to prenatal care increased from 5.8% to 8.2 %.

Service Recipient: Activities related to systems-building

Goal: To provide resources to medical and social service providers on perinatal health, particularly as related to pre-/inter-conception care and postpartum care transitions.

Numerator: # webpage hits

Denominator: not applicable

Significance: This ESM will measure an output of strategy #1-A: Support dissemination of the Illinois Healthy Choices, Healthy Future Perinatal Education Toolkit, which includes resources about pre-/inter-conception health and the transition to postpartum care. The Healthy Choices, Healthy Future Perinatal Education Toolkit was developed by EverThrive Illinois, the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, and other MCH partners during 2010-2015 though the CHIPRA grant. By making the toolkit available on EverThrive’s website (http://www.everthriveil.org/resources/perinatal-education-toolkit), providers and public health professionals have access to wide array of materials and resources, including the perinatal care transition checklist. Monitoring hits on the link for the toolkit will provide a measure of how well this information is being publicized and disseminated for use. The perinatal care transitions checklist is expected to improve the percent of women receiving well-woman visits by encouraging providers serving pregnant women to plan for their health and healthcare needs after pregnancy. Items on the checklist include helping the woman schedule a postpartum visit, referring to a primary care provider, and planning for other potential needs, such as lactation support.
