Perinatal information system (SIP): manual of the use of the program for the analysis and advantage
Montevideo: CLAP/WR; 2010. (CLAP/WR. Scientific Publications; 1565-02)
CLAP/SMR developed the Perinatal Computing System (PCS), which consists of the Perinatal Clinical Record (PCR), the Perinatal Card (PC), the Computerized Systems and the software designed to process the information.
The PCR seeks to gather the data about the pregnant woman and the newborn for which there is universal consensus, developing a sort of road map in one single sheet containing the minimum indispensable data for an adequate care.
To address those issues, the Perinatal Computing System includes the software required to process the data, empowering the institution’s staff to use the information they generated themselves.
The publication herein was developed by CLAP/SMR to facilitate these processes. This document provides a guideline for the management of the Perinatal Computing System programs aimed at strengthening the capacity of the health care staff at the facilities to help them make the most of the data available.
