Description:

National Perinatal Reporting System 

From 1st January 2014 the National Casemix Programme and the Health Research and Information Division at the ESRI will become the Healthcare Pricing Office (HPO).

The National Perinatal Reporting System has as its principal aim the provision of national statistics on perinatal events. The NPRS collects data on approximately 72,000 birth records each year from 20 maternity units and all participating independent midwives. Data collected include morbidity, mortality, and socio-economic data.

The NPRS at the Healthcare Pricing Office is responsible for:

  • Distribution of Birth Notification Forms and collection of the third (green) copy of the Birth Notification Form
  • Data entry and validation of the perinatal data
  • Coding of both morbidity and mortality data using the International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD-10)
  • Coding of mother and father’s occupations according to the Central Statistics Office system of socio-economic group classification
  • Publication of Perinatal Statistics
  • Provision of data and statistics to the Department of Health, Health Service Executive and other relevant agencies

NPRS data has a wide range of potential uses including:

  • Perinatal epidemiology
  • Planning of maternity services
  • Input to population health profiles at health board levels
