What is AIM?

The Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health, or AIM, is a national, cross-sector commitment designed to make birth safer, improve maternal health outcomes and save lives through disseminating and implementing quality improvement initiative that support best practices.

The AIM National Team at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) provides technical assistance and capacity building to interested and enrolled multidisciplinary state and jurisdiction teams to implement AIM-developed patient safety bundles via rapid cycle quality improvement.


What are Patient Safety Bundles?

Patient Safety Bundles (PSB) are a structured way of improving the processes of care and patient outcomes. Patient safety bundles are evidence-informed best practices, developed by multidisciplinary experts, that address specific clinical conditions in pregnant and postpartum people.

  • PSB are the core building blocks of the AIM program’s efforts to address the leading known causes of preventable severe maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States
  • PSB are supported by specific quality metrics and measures through the AIM Data Center.
  • PSB were developed as part of the AIM Program and funded by Heath Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

What is the Goal of Patient Safety Bundles?

The goal of PSBs is to improve the way care is provided to improve outcomes. A bundle includes actionable steps that can be adapted to a variety of facilities and resource levels.
