At the start of the last decade, nearly 1500 very low birth weight infants born in California each year and discharged to home were not referred for High-Risk Infant Follow-up (HRIF) care despite their eligibility by California Children’s Services (CCS) criteria. To address this gap, the California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) launched a statewide initiative designed to boost referral rates at all CPQCC-member neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
