©Professor Lynn Perry Wooten, May 2007 Ross School of Business, University of Michigan 'U' study seeks to close gaps in prenatal care (Michigan Daily, October 13, 2004) Closing the gap of disparities has become a major goal for many government agencies, researchers, healthcare organizations and community groups. Although in the past decade prenatal care utilization rates have risen, decreasing the overall infant mortality rate, disparities in infant mortality and other perinatal outcomes between various ethnic and socio-economic groups continue to widen. Moreover, researchers have yet to explain all of the differences in birth outcomes experienced by African-Americans compared to other groups.
©Professor Lynn Perry Wooten, May 2007 Ross School of Business, University of Michigan The Grants Goals Interdisciplinary research infrastructure to solve public health problems. Develop testable hypotheses for new effective approaches to public health problems Provide an effective mechanism for communicating research- based information to policy leaders, providers, and patients. Three core areas: patients, providers and leaders The Research Team ( 17 departments represented at UM) OB/GYN Genetics Nursing Midwifery Public Health Social Work Engineering School of Information Business Sociology Anthropology Medical History

©Professor Lynn Perry Wooten, May 2007 Ross School of Business, University of Michigan The Organizational Perspective – Research Questions What are best organizing routines for re-energizing the resilience of African-American women during their pregnancies and producing favorable birth outcomes? What are the capacity building activities and competencies associated with these organizing routines? How can other organizations learn from these positive organizing routines?

Transcribed and Coded into NVivo Analyzed using a grounded theory approach
©Professor Lynn Perry Wooten, May 2007 Ross School of Business, University of Michigan Guiding Theories Organizational Routines Skills and capabilities of organizations and its members; the current best practice in an industry; enable organizations to cope with complex problems (Nelson & Winter, 1982) An executed capability for repeated performance that has been learned in response to selective pressures (Cohen, 1996 ).

©Professor Lynn Perry Wooten, May 2007 Ross School of Business, University of Michigan Parkland Memorial Hospital (Dallas, Texas) Delivers approximately 17,000 babies a year; 4 out of every 1000 babies born in the Untied States For African American babies, infant mortality rate is roughly half the national average. Ninety-Five percent of women who deliver at Parkland are indigent. Capacity Building Focus: Internal Operations & Management Rigid, codified rules about medical practices. Re-engineered the delivery process for babies because of system overload; positive consequences for patient care. Elaborate hierarchy with 14 different levels, from nurses aides (OB techs) to attending physicians with years of experience. Team approach to directed by protocols for prenatal, care, labor and delivery. The protocol serves as a medicine cookbook based on refining clinical research; gives the system a sense of order.

Visits continue on an every- other-week basis until the baby is 20 months. The last four visits are monthly until the child is two years old; Visits last 75 to 90 minutes Pregnancy and Birth Outcomes Fewer preterm deliveries Fewer low birth weight babies Fewer instances of pregnancy-induced hypertension
