Preterm Labor Assessment Toolkit
The Preterm Labor Assessment Toolkit (PLAT) aims to standardize the assessment and diagnosis of women who come to the hospital with signs and symptoms of preterm labor. Using this toolkit ensures timely and appropriate interventions for preterm labor, and hospitalization or transport of patients at greatest risk for preterm delivery. The toolkit is implemented in over 40 hospitals statewide. An evaluation in 20 hospitals demonstrated the positive impact of PLAT on clinicians’ assessment behaviors and decisions.

My Pregnancy Record
My Pregnancy Record is a collaborative effort to combine the portable prenatal records created by Contra Costa County Health Services and Regional Perinatal Systems of San Diego, funded through the March of Dimes, California Chapter Community Grants program. The record is a portable document designed to be used by pregnant women and their health care providers to capture essential information related to their medical history and prenatal visits. It features an educational insert of topics important to expectant and postpartum mothers. My Pregnancy Record can be used as a reference in providing medical care in the event of disaster or emergency situations when paper medical charts or other medical records are not available. It can also be used as a backup medical record in the event that a woman requires urgent care before her prenatal records are sent to a hospital. Please email us with any questions about this record.
