Abstract

Iowa’s Maternal Mortality Review Committee, coordinated by the Iowa Medical Society (IMS) in partnership with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), is responsible for reviewing identified maternal deaths for the purpose of reducing morbidity and mortality. Death certificates with the pregnancy indicator box checked and those with relevant obstetrical related ICD-10 codes identify possible maternal deaths. Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) staff work with the Bureau of Health Statistics to identify and link each maternal death certificate to a live birth or fetal death certificate. IDPH staff then request medical records, and conduct a thorough record review to abstract event details and contributing causes leading up to a mother’s death.
