What is this report?
A report of data from nine states using a standard data-collection system provides an in-depth analysis of causes of death, preventability and specific recommendations for action.
For example:
• It confirms that most pregnancy-related deaths are preventable and highlights key opportunities for prevention.
• Nearly half of all pregnancy-related deaths were caused by hemorrhage, cardiovascular and coronary conditions, cardiomyopathy or infection.
• Causes of death differ by race, which highlights unique opportunities for prevention.

MMRC Logic Model

Year of publication or last update: 
2017

Although MMRCs differ from state to state, the logic model is designed to represent the general inputs, activities, and outcomes of an ideal, fully functional MMRC. The logic model can serve as a starting point, and is adaptable to the context of individual state or city-based MMRCs.

In this logic model, the Outputs and Short-term Outcomes columns are joined by the condition: “MMRC recommendations are part of a cycle of continuous quality improvement for health systems.” This is a necessary condition for MMRCs to span the gap between Process and Outcomes.
