Hospital Quality Improvement Program

Through strategic partnerships with hospitals, clinicians, nurses, midwives and other maternal healthcare providers, we are pioneering ways to provide all groups—especially Black, Native, teen and justice-involved parents—with better care and outcomes during conception, pregnancy, birth and beyond.

About the HQI Program

Expectant parents often feel overwhelmed during their experience of pregnancy and birth. And not everyone is equally equipped to advocate for their personal situation and ensure their voice is heard.

To ensure equitable health outcomes for all Tulsans, a commitment to listening and finding ways to reduce pregnancy and birth disparities through our community’s formalized medical services must be the goal for everyone involved. Doctors’ offices, hospitals, and other healthcare programs play a vital, powerful role in this process.

TBEI supports these efforts by identifying healthcare system issues, addressing gaps in care, interpreting trends, identifying high-risk groups, and developing effective intervention action plans and preventative strategies to promote more equitable care offered by provider networks.

This innovative program ensures that those giving birth and the healthcare professions who serve them have shared input and understanding into decisions during labor and delivery. Through the use of TeamBirth’s collaborative approach, everyone involved in the birth has a voice, which helps to promote better decision-making and overall quality of care.
