Birth certificates are an invaluable source of information for assessing risks and quality of maternal and infant health outcomes. Hospitals and researchers use these data to ascertain where improvement is needed and where hospitals are succeeding in ensuring the optimal birth and health outcomes for mothers and babies. Without complete and accurate data, this is not feasible.
BCI’s purpose was to improve the accuracy of birth certificate reporting for health care quality improvement and public health purposes. Based on a pilot with nine hospitals, BCI improved birth certificate reporting in a simple, worthwhile fashion.
