Rhode Island AIM
Alliance on Innovation of Maternal Health

Rhode Island AIM_edited_edited.jpg

Rhode Island is proud to be an AIM state. Hospitals throughout Rhode Island are committed to doing their part in eliminating preventable maternal morbidity and mortality through the use of AIM patient care bundles. AIM focuses on inpatient care, such as care during Labor and Delivery and the immediate Postpartum period. Standardized care models and enhanced teamwork provide the foundation for better outcomes for women, their newborns, and communities.

Safe Reduction of Primary Cesarean Birth

Participating Hospitals

Four hospitals are currently participating in the Rhode Island AIM Collaborative: Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, Kent Hospital, Newport Hospital and South County Hospital

Areas of Interest

RI AIM is focused on reducing the primary cesarean birth rate in the state of Rhode Island, especially those that are not medically indicated. Physiologic, vaginal birth is the goal for many women. Creating support for that plan is essential. 

Disparities in Outcomes

Black women and women of color have a higher rate of cesarean birth in the state of Rhode Island. 

RI AIM is working collaboratively to reduce these disparities
