RI Dept. of Health and CTC-RI Announce Cohort 2 Practices Selected for RI MomsPRN Perinatal Behavioral Health Quality Improvement Initiative
RIDOH and CTC-RI are pleased to announce that 10 practices successfully applied to be part of the RI MomsPRN 15-month learning collaborative which will launched on February 23. The goal of the RI MomsPRN program is to help prenatal care practices increase the identification, early intervention and treatment of depression, anxiety and substance use among their pregnant and postpartum patients. RIDOH has partnered with Center for Women’s Behavioral Health at Women and Infants Hospital to provide a free consultation service staffed by perinatal behavioral health experts who can assist practices with a behavioral health diagnosis, treatment planning, medication management as well as identification of appropriate resources. Providers treating perinatal patients are welcome to call the RI MomsPRN psychiatry teleconsultation line Monday-Friday (401-430-2800) or learn more at by visiting their website. RIDOH has contracted with CTC-RI to provide project management, data and evaluation, and practice facilitation support for the practices that will be participating in this initiative.
