|Perinatal information system (SIP): perinatal clinical Record and complementary forms|
The information systems should aim at assisting the countries to meet their commitments, while
ensuring the quality of the care they provide.
SIP consists of a set of instruments originally designed to be used at the gyneco-obstetrics and neonatology departments. These instruments are the Perinatal Clinical Record (PCR), the perinatal card, the abortion form, the partogram, the neonatal inpatient record, the neonatal nursing chart
and the programs for the local capture and processing of the data.
Using the SIP, the local maternities can enter the clinical data they collect into a database created with it, and hence produce their own local reports. In this document CLAP/SMR presents the latest version of the PCR and the ancillary forms that were developed as instruments to meet the current priorities in the region.
The ancillary form to be used in the case of abortion is intended to improve the records on abortion, to provide a better knowledge of its epidemiology and to reduce women’s morbi-mortality for that cause.
The ancillary forms for neonatal hospitalization and the daily chart of the care provided seeks to record the care received by newborns requiring specialized nursing care
