Smooth Transitions is a statewide quality improvement initiative at the Foundation for Health Care Quality with the mission to improve hospital transfers from planned community-based births (birth center or home) to promote greater patient safety and satisfaction. We are eager to hear from you about your recent hospital transfer experience and appreciate your honest feedback. Your responses will be used to help improve the transfer process for others. Information you provide through this survey may be shared during meetings of community midwives, hospital providers and staff, and EMS personnel for quality improvement at hospitals participating in the Smooth Transitions Quality Improvement Program. In addition, selected quotes may be included in presentations to promote the program and in publications about Smooth Transitions.
It takes about 15-20 minutes to complete the survey and you will be compensated for your time. Once you start, your responses will be saved so you can come back to it later. Thank you!
