Information Systems Tools
Information Systems Tools are essential to tracking progress toward ending preventable newborn deaths. Our package of tools, which support data collection and data management, is meant to give policy-makers, facilities, and clinicians access to facility data to guide informed decision-making for improving small and sick newborn care in their community.
Health Facility Assessment (HFA) Modules for small and sick newborn care
Data dictionaries for electronic data collection (REDcap)
We have co-designed the NEST360 Neonatal Inpatient Dataset (NID) to assess the quality of care at an individual level for each newborn, with the purpose of informing quality improvement, measuring impact, and enabling actionable initiatives in neonatal units providing Level 2+CPAP care. This tool is designed to integrate with existing routine data systems, enabling the tracking of outcomes and care pathways, ultimately enhancing the quality of care for small and sick newborns.
