Webinar: Preventing Prematurity: Opportunities for Health Plans

April 13, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

Over the past two decades, the rate of preterm births has increased by 36 percent with preterm births now accounting for 12.5 percent of all live births.  Contributing to this increase is a rise in elective inductions and cesarean deliveries prior to 37 weeks gestation, despite evidence and guidelines recommending against elective deliveries before 39 weeks without clinical indication.  Preterm births are both emotionally and financially costly, taking a toll on the family and resulting in high direct health care costs due to longer hospital stays and hospital readmissions.  This webinar will bring together health plans and leaders in the maternal and child health community to share innovative programs and explore strategies to reduce preterm birth and the associated costs.
