Performance Improvement 2006. Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS) Program Evaluation


The objectives were to inform the operational, analytic, translation, and capacity-building functions of the current PRAMS system and make them more efficient, effective, and capable of meeting future needs; to provide information that will guide the expansion and support of additional state PRAMS programs; and to provide information that will enable the PRAMS system to be more responsive to changes in public health priorities and policies, including the needs of the state programs and the wider Maternal and Child Health Block Grant (MCH) community. The findings from this evaluation show that PRAMS is a strong and vibrant surveillance program facing a range of programmatic challenges. Many of the study’s recommendations have already been incorporated into program operations.
