Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR

In 2016, the Hawaii legislature authorized the Department of Health to conduct multidisciplinary and multiagency reviews to reduce the incidence of preventable maternal deaths. The Hawaii Maternal Mortality Review first convened in 2017. The committee has 22 members, meets semi-annually, and reviews all pregnancy-associated cases. In 2016, Hawaii had 18,053 live births (preliminary).
