Section Topics

Care Management for High-Risk Pregnancies (CMHRP)

What is Care Management for High Risk Pregnancies?

Care Management for High Risk Pregnancies (CMHRP) is outcome-focused, with an emphasis on improving birth outcomes through reducing the rate of preterm and low birthweight births and monitors the pregnant Medicaid population and prenatal service delivery system using data.  CMHRP applies systems and information to improve care and assist members in becoming engaged in a collaborative process designed to manage medical, social and behavioral health conditions more effectively.

Meeting the diverse and complex needs of members requires a holistic, person-centered approach that addresses both physical and behavioral health. A holistic approach must consider the social determinants of health - "conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks" (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2016). The more complex the needs, the more comprehensive the approach should be for assisting the member with a care plan that addresses the whole person and collaborates with other systems that impact the member’s well-being.
