About this group

In January 2021, BAPM convened a Data and Informatics Steering Group in response to the increasing complexity surrounding neonatal data arising from varying quality measures and diagnostic definitions, and multiple electronic patient record systems.

The group aims to champion and support perinatal professionals with the use of neonatal data to improve neonatal care and services. 

The remit of the group includes:

  • Advocacy for the collection and use of accurate data to benefit patient care and neonatal services
  • Development of shared resources to support perinatal professionals to maximise the utility of data to benefit patient care
  • Promotion of a nationally standardised approach to quality measure definitions and interoperability of EPR systems, reducing the burden of data entry for clinical staff
  • Facilitation of collaborative engagement between stakeholders to streamline data collection, curation and analysis for common purposes
