Visit After Delivery
What was measured?What percentage of HMO members who are women that gave birth had a check-up visit 21-56 days after delivery?
These results are based on a sample of HMO patient billing and medical records.
Why is it important?Getting a check-up shortly after giving birth is an important step in helping a mother adjust to changes—physical, emotional or social—that she is experiencing. This visit should be used to help mothers care for their infants and themselves.
Look for differences of at least four percentage points.
Smaller differences are often not significant.
