The Wisconsin Maternal Mortality Review Team (MMRT) collects and reviews case-level information about all maternal deaths among Wisconsin residents for the purpose of making recommendations to the Department of Health Services and its partners on changes in systems and practice that may result in the prevention of future Wisconsin maternal deaths.
The Wisconsin MMRT was established by the Wisconsin Division of Public Health and the Wisconsin Section of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in 1997. Prior to 1997, cases of maternal mortality were reviewed by a committee of the Wisconsin Medical Society. Currently, the MMRT is supported through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention ERASE MM Grant, CDC Foundation Rapid Maternal Overdose Review (RMOR) Grant, and the Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant administered by the Federal Health Resources and Services Administration.
The Wisconsin MMRT is currently reviewing deaths from 2017. There were 66,593 live births in 2016.
