Pregnancies and deliveries need to be managed in a “continuum of care” across all levels of health care service provision. For this purpose, many countries maintain a “Perinatal Registry” – an electronic database in which relevant information related to pregnancy and childbirth (obstetrical history, risk factors, test outcomes, etc.) is periodically collected and evaluated.
MCH-Registry is an open source web-based software tool that supports health care providers in managing high risk pregnant women. The tool enables better decision-making, better quality of antenatal- and perinatal care and a reduction of neonatal and maternal mortality. Pregnancy related information is collected for visits to the facility, tests, medication prescribed, hospitalisations, and as well as on delivery and newborn.
