Revealing Disparities in Pregnancy Outcomes Using PPOR and FIMMRR Richard H. Aubry, MD, MPH, Martha Wojtowycz, PhD, Michelle Bode, MD, MPH, Pamela Parker, BA, Kristen Luke-Houseman, RN, BA Center for Maternal and Child Health State University of New York Upstate Medical University Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Supported by a grant from the Community Health Foundation of Western and Central New York. The Community Health Foundation is a non-profit private foundation with a mission to improve the health and health care of the people of Western and Central New York. February 2010
Objective To examine the relationship of poor socioeconomic condition, as reflected by Medicaid status, to poor outcomes of pregnancy.
The Central New York Region consists of a 13 county area spanning from St. Lawrence County in the North to Broome and Tioga counties in the South and includes 21 birth hospitals.
Statewide Perinatal Data System (SPDS) Population-based birth registry that captures information on all live births in New York State. It consists of the New York State Electronic Birth Certificate (EBC) and additional voluntary questions, e.g., such as the content of prenatal care, intentions of pregnancy, and perinatal depression, that are expected to be used for quality improvement purposes. The SPDS contains data on: maternal demographics; obstetrical history; prenatal care; labor and delivery information; and birth outcomes.

The SPDS contains data on: maternal demographics; obstetrical history; prenatal care; labor and delivery information; and birth outcomes.
SPDS: Pay Source Coding Medicaid – select this choice if the mother’s care was paid for by Medicaid, PCAP, MOMS, Child Health Plus A, Medicaid Managed Care, or Family Health Plus (39.8%) Private Insurance – select this item if the mother’s care was paid for by private insurance including indemnity insurance and/or managed care insurance (51.2%) Self-pay – select this item if the mother had no health insurance (1.1%) Indian Health Service (0.1%) CHAMPUS/TRICARE (Military and dependents) (5.0%) Other government (e.g. Child Health Plus B, Veteran’s Administration) (1.0%) Other (1.8%) Unknown (0.1%) Medicaid group also applies to Medicaid as secondary payor. (5.5%)
Fetal-Infant Mortality/Morbidity Review/Registry (FIMMRR) Clinically oriented, community based registry to capture detailed data on mortalities/ morbidities for the 21 birth hospitals in the Central New York Region. By evaluating data from chart reviews of all fetal and infant mortalities (≥ 300 grams) as well as major morbidities, patterns have been identified which have informed recommendations for improvements (both social and medical).

Despite increased risk factors for the Medicaid insured women, most birth outcomes in the Central New York Region are not significantly different between Medicaid and Non-Medicaid insured women. Birth Outcomes

Rates of LBW and especially Small for Gestational Age are significantly higher in Medicaid Insured births. Morbidity
Using the Fetal-Infant Morbidity/Mortality Review/Registry (FIMMRR), we also explored the Fetal/Infant death rates among Medicaid and Non-Medicaid insured women. Mortality
Overall number of total deaths/total live births + fetal deaths Fetal number of intrauterine deaths/total live births + fetal deaths Neonatal number of deaths ≤ 28 days of life/total live births Post-Neonatal number of deaths 29 -365 days of life/total live births Infant Neonatal + Post-Neonatal Standard Calculation of Death Rates (all ≥ 300 grams)

The significant difference in mortality is concentrated within the Infant Deaths, most strikingly the Post- Neonatal Deaths. The lack of a significant difference in mortality for both Fetal and Neonatal Deaths, suggests a potential protective effect by Medicaid. Further analysis, using the Perinatal Periods of Risk approach, provided a different prospective. Findings

Cause of Death Conclusions These findings support our earlier Findings that pre-pregnancy and early pregnancy factors, along with post neonatal factors play the largest role in the disparity between death rates among Medicaid and Non-Medicaid insured women. A protective effect of Medicaid Status is suggested regarding Fetal and Neonatal deaths.
