Gaps in health equity related to maternal health affect women regardless of race, age, income, and geography. Black and Hispanic populations disproportionately suffer from severe maternal morbidity. Rates of diagnosis and treatment for post-partum depression vary widely across the nation.

In this session, you’ll hear from plan leaders about the critical role of data and analytics in making health equity investments. You will walk away with:
- A clear understanding of the framework BCBS of Alabama is using to make investments in maternal health equity
- Insights from the BHI data repository into the root causes of severe maternal morbidity and post-partum depression to help you benchmark performance and prioritize investments
