In The News: PCCI fighting back against rising infant mortality rates

PCCI fighting back against rising infant mortality rates

In this DCEO article, PCCI’s Yolande Pengetnze, MD, MS, FAAP, Vice President, Clinical Leadership, was quoted and PCCI (and its partners) were shown as leaders in helping support at-risk, pregnant women in the community – in the wake of new data released by the CDC. This article shows the real, positive impact of the preterm birth prevention program.

Read the article here: https://www.dmagazine.com/healthcare-business/2023/11/texas-is-one-of-four-states-with-increasing-infant-mortality-this-local-organization-is-fighting-back/

A highlight from the article:

Lack of health insurance and access to prenatal care is a significant factor for infant mortality, says Dr. Yolande Pengetnze, a pediatrician at the Parkland Center for Clinical Innovation. Other factors that increase infant mortality are social determinants of health, like transportation, healthy food, and childcare.

“When we see the data on infant mortality, an increase in mortality is driven by preterm delivery,” Pengetnze says. “It is mostly babies born at a gestational age of less than 24 weeks.”

PCCI has long been operating a program to target high-risk pregnant women to help them avoid preterm birth, the primary driver of infant mortality. The program helps them connect to prenatal care and overcome other barriers to seeing a provider. The Preterm Birth Intervention Program uses several factors to identify high-risk women signed up through the Parkland Community Health Program, a Medicaid managed care program. These women can sign up to receive text reminders to attend upcoming appointments and other educational interventions to prevent preterm births.

Texas Christian University Magazine features PCCI’s medical breakthroughs

Texas Christian University Magazine features PCCI’s medical breakthroughs

Texas Christian University Magazine features PCCI’s CEO Steve Miff, PhD, in a story about medical breakthroughs in an article titled: “IMAGINING MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS: Future doctors design solutions to health care challenges in a groundbreaking program.”

This story features a number of healthcare innovations, including those developed by PCCI, for example:

“If you enroll them in a diabetes-focused program, you might be addressing only one of the multiple things they are dealing with,” Miff said. Health care providers become used to treating problems sequentially, but that becomes a less effective strategy when, say, patients miss appointments because they struggle with issues like transportation or taking time off work.

During the last several years, PCCI has played an import role in supporting the health of Dallas County, with a number of important initiatives, which demonstrate the kind of programs your support can enable in the future:

– COVID-19: Proactive Pandemic Management. PCCI, Parkland, and Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) have collaborated from the outset of the pandemic to address the multiple challenges COVID-19 has presented to care providers and the community including public education, testing and vaccinations.

– Pediatric Asthma: Along with COVID, PCCI, in collaboration with Parkland Health, has led a highly effective fight against pediatric asthma.

-Preterm Birth Prevention: To better serve pregnant women in our community, PCCI and PCHP developed and implemented an innovative Preterm Birth (PTB) Prevention program that uses a machine learning algorithm, healthcare data, and SDOH to identify pregnant women who are at a higher risk of preterm birth.

-Building Connected Communities of Care – Dallas AHC Model: In 2022, the Dallas AHC model successfully completed its fifth (and final) AHC model year while continuing to exceed annual navigation requirements (connecting over 3,000 individuals annually with community resources and providing individual follow-ups for up to 12 months in the fourth year of the model), despite the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. PCCI’s preliminary analysis of Medicaid claims data has provided promising results in relation to reduced ED utilization and cost for beneficiaries engaged in the Dallas AHC model.
