Care teams for expectant mothers and babies are often made up of clinicians across multiple specialties and different locations. This means patients with complex cases may have to travel or be transferred to numerous sites in order to receive the care they need.
These moments, often at the most critical stages of pregnancy, create disruptions in care continuity and increase patient safety risks.

Nurse Navigators—Patient Advocates
The journey for both mothers and newborns can be fraught with unexpected developments and confusion. Patients deserve to have advocates that help them navigate their journeys.
Envision’s perinatal nurse navigators personalize maternal care and support each patient’s journey through pregnancy, NICU stay and discharge. By linking expectant mothers and newborns to qualified specialists for birth, NICU and subsequent lifetime follow-up care, this model elevates patient experience and outcomes.
Envision’s perinatal outreach nurses support top-of-scope care at our partner facilities, allowing more infants to receive care in their communities without requiring transfer to outside facilities.

Evidence-Based Medicine Drives Quality Improvement
Envision’s commitment to quality throughout the care continuum delivers quality programs customized to patient communities.
We recognize that metrics and outcomes don’t tell the whole story of the patient journey. To develop true data insights, quality programs must perform holistic, multidisciplinary reviews of targeted data.
That’s why Envision develops programs that are large, diverse and cohesive. By implementing multidisciplinary teams and capturing targeted data, we help our partners institute sustainable quality programs that implement meaningful changes and improve outcomes.
For one Envision partner facility, our quality reviews pinpointed a number of process bottlenecks. By engaging the clinical teams at this facility, Envision was able to ensure buy-in for process improvements and revamped workflows that significantly boosted premature infant survival rates:
- 0% to 25% in infants weighing less than 500 grams
- 40% to 70% for infants weighing 501-750 grams
- 76.6% to 83.3.% for infants weighing 751-1,000 grams
