New York State Health Foundation targets $1.2M for consumer empowerment

Meanwhile, the Northeast Business Group on Health, an employer-led coalition, will deploy its $225,000 grant for its Safe birth NY program to help women in New York City and on Long Island make more informed decisions in choosing where to give birth by creating an online scorecard that utilizes maternal-quality data. For example, a woman’s risk for a C-section varies widely, depending on where she delivers her baby, according to the grant application.
