Emerging from COVID-19: An Action Plan for a Healthier State

The COVID-19 pandemic pushed us to be more resourceful, resilient, and collaborative — and provides opportunities to emerge with a stronger and more equitable health care system. To assess and further positive change, BioNJ and the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute joined forces to bring health care experts throughout the State together to create, “Emerging from COVID-19: An Action Plan for A Healthier State.”

Recruit, Train, and Retain a Resilient and Diverse Health Care Workforce for New Jersey

A key focus area of our COVID-19 Action Plan was the need to create and support a resilient and diverse health care workforce for the future. To deliver safe, equitable, person-centered care, New Jersey needs a health care workforce sufficient in size, life experience, diversity, and training to meet the needs of its diverse and aging population.

Action Plan (MAP)

The Quality Institute released the Maternity Action Plan (“MAP”), a holistic approach to combatting maternal mortality and morbidity. The MAP is a guide to implementing and accelerating the goals of Nurture NJ. The MAP provides a directional path forward in four critical ways to address New Jersey’s maternal health crisis. By using the MAP and advancing Nurture NJ’s goals, together we will make New Jersey the safest and most equitable place for pregnant individuals to give birth and raise children.
