Description:
This second annual report of the Irish Maternity Indicator System (IMIS) provides national results for 30 metrics from all public maternity units and hospitals for January – December 2015.1 The data from 2014 are also provided for comparison and reflect the latest available data for that year.2 [See Appendix 2 for the IMIS data collection form; the data and methods of analysis are described in Appendix 5.] Senior Managers in hospitals are now using IMIS on a monthly basis to monitor and manage their hospital activities. In the past year, staff at the maternity hospitals have been taking measures to improve the quality of their data and their data collection and reporting processes. Further, based on the improved data, measures have also been taken at maternity units to improve the quality of care delivered. During the year, HSE Acute Hospitals Division decided to use the IMIS data to populate the Maternity Patient Safety Statement, which was recommended in the report of the Chief Medical Officer into the maternity services in Midland Regional Hospital, Portlaoise (see Appendix 4). We continue to develop and maintain relationships with Quality Assurance (QA) Officers at all of the units. During 2015, we organised and facilitated two workshops where the QA Officers attended to share their experiences of IMIS and learn about new developments. The enthusiasm and collaboration from this group for the IMIS has been instrumental to its successful implementation. This 2015 national report has now been published within nine months of the year ending, deeming it to be the most current national report of its nature; next year, we plan to publish the 2016 report within the second quarter of 2017. Also in 2017, following a review of the IMIS in collaboration with staff in the maternity units, we plan to refine the definitions of the existing metrics and extend the range of metrics. We thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the IMIS (for acknowledgements, see Appendix 1)
