Description:
Assessment of quality of care in maternity services requires formal systems of measurement and regular review of activities in hospitals, as well as analysis and interpretation of the findings. The HSE Clinical Programme in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (CPOG) developed the Irish Maternity Indicator System in 2014 as a new system of measuring and interpreting activities in maternity services. The objective of the IMIS is to bring consistency to the measurement and interpretation of maternity services nationally: a reliable system of measurement and interpretation can highlight cases for investigation and signal potential problems. This report aims to demonstrate the benefits of the IMIS for clinicians and senior managers.
