A new report from the Center for Healthcare Quality and Payment Reform (CHQPR) found that more than half of rural hospitals in the United States do not offer maternity care — and of those that do, over a third lose money on patient services. A study from the McKinsey Health Institute reveals the massive unrealized financial opportunity in closing the women's health gap. Plus, the urgency of maternal health crisis has led to an increased focus on the postpartum period while 53% of ob/gyns report experiencing burnout -- second only behind emergency services.
