Healthy Start is a community-based program that applies an outcomes oriented service system approach to achieve program goals of reduced infant mortality and disparities, and improved maternal health outcomes. The Healthy Start EPIC Framework is a continuous quality improvement framework that guides the implementation of the Healthy Start Program across the four perinatal periods (e.g., preconception /interception, postpartum, prenatal, and parenting). It is a standardized approach to assessing and addressing participant and community needs and assuring those needs are met.
