Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder Bundle

 This page contains information and resources for providers and hospitals on the Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder Bundle.

AIM announced a new bundle on “Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder” in Fall 2017. Texas was invited to be part of a multi-state collaborative to focus on this issue. Texas is working with the other states and experts to help develop the bundle’s metrics, implementation strategies, and to share tools and best practices so the bundle can be put into practice. The work is being completed through four workgroups focused on provider education, clinical pathways/quality improvement, metrics, and community outreach and engagement. ACOG anticipates the bundle to be ready for implementation in the Summer of 2018 or soon after.  

In Texas, DSHS plans to first engage hospitals that have experience with quality improvement activities related to neonatal abstinence syndrome. This group of hospitals will pilot the bundle to prepare for broader implementation. DSHS anticipates that the bundle will be ready for full implementation in Texas hospital systems in the Summer of 2019.
