Webinar: Disparities in Maternity Care

During a new session of Congress with health care reform and budget deficits on everyone’s radar again, Childbirth Connection hosted two health care leaders for a webinar on the intersection of maternity care disparities, health care law, and the rising cost of care. Ray Cox, MD, Chair of Obstetrics & Gynecology at St. Agnes Hospital, Maryland, presented the business case for equity in maternity care, showing the economic impact of disparities in access and outcomes of maternity care in his presentation “Making the Business Case for Equity in Women’s Health.” Kevin Fiscella, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Community & Preventive Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry, reviewed the provisions in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that are intended to reduce maternity care disparities in his presentation “The Blueprint for Action: Disparities in Access and Outcomes for Maternity Care – Implications of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”
