Join the Progesterone Project

OPQC Progesterone Efforts and Next Steps

OPQC is currently working with 23 outpatient clinics affiliated with the 20 OPQC charter sites. These sites are enthusiastically implementing ways to reduce preterm births through the appropriate use of progesterone in women at risk of preterm birth. The Collaborative is learning about barriers, challenges, and how to streamline data forms for tracking improvement. 

During 2017-2018, OPQC expects to invite additional practices to join this work such as maternity care provider sites from the Ohio Equity Institute (OEI) regions, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC's).
