New Zealand Maternity Clinical Indicators 2011 – Ministry of Health – 20 May 2013

ISBN 978-478-39397-2 (online)

“The New Zealand Maternity Clinical Indicators are the result of collaboration between the Ministry of Health and maternity stakeholders, representing consumer, midwifery, obstetric, general practice, paediatric and anaesthetic perspectives. Building on previous work undertaken across Australasia, an expert working group has established a set of 12 maternity clinical indicators that are relevant to the New Zealand setting and can be measured using available data collections.

This third report presents data for 2011 using the same standardised definitions as in the previous two reports (2009 and 2010). This is also the third report using the standard primipara definition which allows the separate assessment of a group of women for whom interventions and outcomes should be similar. In addition to eight indicators for standard primiparae, there are three indicators for all women giving birth in hospital and one indicator covering all babies born in hospital.”

“The Clinical Indicators Project is a programme of work that aims to develop clinically relevant, methodologically robust performance indicators for obstetric and gynaecological care using currently available data. This information will be used to inform quality improvement initiatives and provide comparative benchmarking for women’s health services across the UK.

This project is being carried out in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The first report on Patterns of Maternity Care in English NHS Hospitals is now available.

The report presents a series of eleven indicators that can be used to compare the performance of English maternity units. It is the first of what will be an annual account by the RCOG of variation in care delivered to women during childbirth.

The report uses Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data from 2011/12 that is routinely submitted by each NHS hospital. For the first time, this data has been analysed in a way that enables fairer comparisons to be made between hospitals. The researchers have risk-adjusted for factors which are beyond the control of the hospital, such as the age and medical history of the mother.

The indicators reveal considerable variation among maternity units in England.”
