|Improving the Quality of Maternal Fetal Medicine Medical Services||
News Update, February 27, 2012
The Maternal Fetal Medicine Foundation (MFMF) was formed in 2005 and in turn instituted the Nuchal Translucency Quality Review (NTQR). Effective January 1, 2012 the MFMF became the Perinatal Quality Foundation (perinatalquality. org). The NTQR program (ntqr. org) will not change and will be joined by other initiatives. The Examiner will continue to focus on first trimester risk assessment and the NTQR program but will also include items of interest related to new developments in obstetrical care.
The mission of the Perinatal Quality Foundation is to improve the quality of Maternal Fetal Medicine medical services by providing state of the art educational programs, and evidencebased, statistically valid monitoring systems to evaluate current practices and facilitate the transition of emerging technologies into clinical care.
The Perinatal Quality Foundation web portal will remain as a gateway for future maternal-fetal initiatives.
