Specifications include, but are not limited to: DHSS upholds providers as partners in achieving our mission of improving health outcomes for women and their babies in Delaware. In an effort to continually learn together in pursuit of achieving this goal, DHSS has reframed this RFP to integrate an outcomes-orientation and culture throughout the contracting process and ongoing service delivery relationship. By focusing on outcomes, DHSS takes an equity-driven approach that deepens funder-provider-participant mutual accountability in designing and delivering services. This approach elevates provider and participant voice, increases provider flexibility, and encourages the application of data and local experience and expertise in customizing the program to achieve priority outcomes. Through this RFP and contracting process, DHSS also seeks more frequent communication with providers and participants in which all partners discuss program progress, results, and ideas for removing system barriers, adapting practices, and ultimately achieving success. The goal of this project is improve birth outcomes across the state by improving access to high quality preconception, prenatal and interconception care and collecting the requisite data to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the program. The Healthy Women Healthy Babies Program’s long term goals are: ● Decrease in premature births; ● Decrease in low birth weight (LBW) and very low birth weight babies (VLBW); ● Decrease in disparity ratio of poor birth outcomes (for e.g., neonatal mortality and postnatal mortality between African American and White infants); ● Decrease in infant mortality; and ● Decreased birth defects.
