Located in Santa Clara, California, the Kaiser Permanente (KP) Northern California Regional Perinatal Service Center provides obstetric care to high-risk women throughout Northern California. Services designed to prevent preterm birth began in 1991, and the center has expanded to include home hypertension management, home diabetes management, hyperemesis support, and home nonstress testing programs. The goals of the center are to provide clinical services, to coordinate and maximize resources via telecommunications, to emphasize patient education, to empower patients in self-assessment and lifestyle change, and to support clinicians in the delivery of care. The center also conducts perinatal outcome studies and clinical trials.
