-Interconception Care Project
Called the Interconception Care Project, the project is designed to maximize postpartum care. Developed by a panel of obstetric and health experts, the recommendations include evidence-based clinical management algorithms for postpartum care based on the 21 most common pregnancy and delivery complications. Complications were identified by using ICD-9 discharge code data from California hospitals.
