In this paper, we used publicly available Joint Commission Quality Check data from April 2014 to March 2015 for three Perinatal Care measures to link to Medicare Provider of Services and American Hospital Association Annual Survey data. Although many rural hospitals remain exempt from reporting requirements, the measures offer an opportunity for both rural and urban hospitals to assess and improve care.
