The Early Elective Delivery Collaborative was established to reduce early elective deliveries in the commonwealth. Research shows that healthy pregnant women who undergo early, non- medically necessary deliveries before 39 weeks of gestational age have deliveries which result in more complications, including death for infants. All 53 hospitals that are participating in the EED initiative submitted data for the first quarter of 2013, reporting an average of 3.41 percent of live births which will serve as a baseline for the project. Dr. Puritz has announced the statewide target for early elective deliveries as two percent or lower.
