Welcome to Alpha Maxx Healthcare

AMAXX is the premiere NCQA accredited Perinatal Population Health Management firm operating in Western Tennessee.  Utilizing its biopsychosocial Perinatal+ä product and approach, Alpha Maxx’s collaborative initiative has dramatically and consistently stabilized, and reduced the incidence of prematurity and infant mortality in Western Tennessee.  This collaboration has consisted primarily of Alpha Maxx Healthcare, the Regional Medical Center at Memphis (The MED), Baptist Woman’s Hospital, Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, the Memphis-Shelby County Health Department, UT Medical Group, the Health Loop Clinics, and selected physicians and other community programs.  This association began in April 1999 and has continued to function and improve the perinatal outcomes of our target population through the collective efforts of all.

Preterm Births

As of 2006, the rate of preterm births in the United States was 12.8%, and it has steadily been increasing. Out of all the major ethnicities in the U.S., African Americans have one of the highest rates of preterm births with Memphis having one of the highest prematurity rates in the entire country. Preterm births can lead to severe health problems for the baby, could lead to perinatal loss, and many more problems. For more information on prematurity, click here.
