Through a partnership with the Texas Department of State Health Services, THA is working with 219 hospitals across the state to reduce preventable mortality and morbidity.

DSHS recently held the 2020 TexasAIM Summit, a virtual event for hospital executives and direct care staff of AIM-participating hospitals. Attendees celebrated their important work to implement the obstetric hemorrhage bundle and kicked off work for the severe hypertension in pregnancy bundle. TexasAIM hospitals have made great progress to make Texas the healthiest state for moms and babies. Get a recap of the event from the presentation slides or watch a recording of the event.
