The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has teamed up with the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) and the Texas Hospital Association (THA) to create the TexasAIM initiative. TexasAIM will help hospitals and clinics in Texas carry out maternal safety projects.

Our goal is to end preventable maternal death and severe maternal morbidity. DSHS has put together a team of experts to guide the implementation of AIM throughout Texas.  

What is AIM?

AIM is a program used by hospitals and communities across the country. AIM helps hospitals and communities improve maternal safety through implementing best-practices. They work with state teams and health systems to achieve these goals.

More information on AIM can be found on the About AIM webpage.  

AIM Maternal Safety Bundles

An AIM Maternal Safety Bundle is a collection of best-practices for improving maternal care. Experts in the field have vetted these practices to ensure their effectiveness. Each bundle focuses on a specific maternal health and safety topic.

TexasAIM will first work on the Obstetric Hemorrhage Bundle.  The initiative will then focus on the Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder Bundle and Severe Hypertension in Pregnancy Bundle.

More information on the Obstetric Hemorrhage Bundle can be found on the Obstetric Hemorrhage Bundle page.

More information on the Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder Bundle can be found on the Obstetric Care for Women with  Opioid Use Disorder Bundle page.  

More information on the Severe Hypertension Bundle can be found on the Severe Hypertension Bundle page.

Getting Started

Any Texas birthing hospital system can join the growing and engaged Texas AIM community.
