The ACNM Benchmarking Project

The 2013 ACNM Benchmarking Project is now open! Submit your data by April 17.

The ACNM Benchmarking Project is vital to the future of midwifery care, quality, and access in the United States as a professional self-maintenance strategy and as a method of quality assurance, allowing participating practices to compare themselves to practices that are similar in size and environment. 

Participation in the Benchmarking survey helps midwives speak authoritatively to insurers and consultants about which clinical practices need to be encouraged or discouraged to produce excellent outcomes. Benchmarking also acts as tangible proof of the improved outcomes and lower costs of midwifery care. 

For  questions, e-mail Diana R. Jolles CNM, MSN, at dianamidwife@yahoo.com or call her at 361-389-1935.
