Outcomes management involves goal-directed coordination of transdisciplinary teams. It focuses on achieving measurable outcomes for select populations of patients. The article presents a new advanced practice role focused on outcomes management for the perinatal population. Practice pattern reforms accomplished during 3 years of work and the associated favorable clinical, functional, service, quality, and financial outcomes are described. Supports required for the success of an outcomes management program as well as lessons learned from 2 years work are presented.
