Maternal death rates in the U.S. are on the rise, with more than 700 women dying every year in childbirth and more than 50,000 women facing near-fatal complications. It is estimated that half of the pregnancy and childbirth-related deaths are preventable.

Wyoming Medical Center will present on how they are reducing variation in care to improve outcomes for this patient population.
