Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) is a community-based, action-oriented process to review fetal and infant deaths and make recommendations to spark systemic changes to prevent future similar deaths. The FIMR Case Review Team (CRT) reviews cases to examine medical, non-medical, and systems-related factors and circumstances contributing to fetal and infant deaths on the county level.
Fetal and infant deaths are sentinel events that illustrate system and resource issues. Understanding and addressing infant mortality concern in our community can be challenging, however it is one of the most important things that can be done to improve the overall health of our population. The FIMR Community Action Group (CAG) meets regularly to develop strategies aimed at reducing the rate of mortality.
