Evaluation of the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) Program: Cohort 2 Grantees

Project Overview

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) established the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) pilot program to improve access to and continuity of maternal and obstetrics care in rural communities. The program is implementing innovative models designed to address the unique barriers rural mothers face in accessing continuous, coordinated, and risk-appropriate maternal and obstetrics care.

This evaluation seeks to assess the implementation and impact of the RMOMS networks across cohort 2 grantees. Specifically, for these cohort 2 RMOMS grantees, Insight is—

  • Developing a program logic model and patient journey maps
  • Developing a data collection plan tailored to each awardee
  • Conducting interviews with network leadership, care managers, and clinicians
  • Collecting patient-level data
  • Analyzing qualitative and quantitative data
  • Developing an awardee fact sheet

A series of annual reports will highlight innovative maternal health service delivery models that can increase care access, improve health outcomes, and ensure sustainable service delivery for at-risk rural women.
