AHRQ's Safety Program for Perinatal Care used a multifaceted approach based on the comprehensive unit-based safety program to improve safety culture and perinatal outcomes at 46 hospitals. In this study, investigators conducted structured interviews to evaluate how participating hospitals used health information technology to enable implementation of the program. A variety of uses for health IT were described, including integration of checklists and standardized handoff tools into the electronic health record.
