Join our PRA Champion Program

B’more for Healthy Babies (BHB) is launching the PRA Champion program to help clinics complete PRA forms and channel women to invaluable services. In Baltimore, Medicaid-enrolled moms with PRAs are 80% less likely to lose their babies, during pregnancy or postpartum––so our goal is that 100% of Medicaid-eligible pregnant women have PRAs completed on their behalf.
The Role
The PRA Champion will own the PRA process in his/her clinic and enlist help from colleagues to pursue goals like these:
• Make filling out PRAs easier and more motivating
• Ensure completed PRAs meet quality standards 
• Confirm PRAs are routed appropriately 
• Track the clinic’s PRA submission performance over time
• Restock forms regularly
What to Expect
Support: BHB will hold a personal orientation meeting with the Champion about the role and goals of the program. Throughout the program, BHB will provide support through regular meetings to help Champions set and meet goals and identify and manage obstacles.
Community: The Champion will be paired with a group of 4-8 other Champions. These groups will meet monthly in Baltimore to share victories and challenges, pose questions, and share best practices. Champion group members will join an email list to stay in contact between meetings. 
Champions will spend about 2 hours a month interacting with BHB and other Champions. All meetings can be scheduled at times that are convenient for each Champion. Each Champion will spend an independently determined amount of time actually improving PRA submission in their clinic, based on their capacity and how many practices they want to modify. 

What Now?

  1. If you are interested in the role, we encourage you to nominate yourself by emailing Amy.Secrist@BaltimoreCity.gov.
