Database development, monitoring and improvements in neonatal outcome
Health care requires the collection and use of data, whether on paper or in an electronic record. Apart from direct clinical care, there are many secondary uses of data that are important for funding, monitoring quality, audit and research. This article describes why all involved in health care must be involved in the use of data and how this can be used to improve quality of care and hopefully outcome for the newborn baby.
