Managed Healthcare Executive: Policymakers must take action to ensure maternal health extends beyond the labor and delivery room

OBHG’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mark Simon urges policymakers to not lose sight of our country’s maternal health battle. He recently shared his recommendations on making a lasting impact for families and their children in Managed Healthcare Executive.

In the article, Dr. Simon details how investments in the following areas will make a lasting impact for families and their children:

  • Invest in community-based care
  • Improve data collection processes
  • Develop high quality care teams
  • Expand postpartum benefits
