Implementation Notes:

Birth information is an essential and unique requirement of child’s EHR and is a collection of data elements about the child at birth, many of which are taken from the mother’s prenatal and delivery records. Birth information is static because it is obtained from external sources (the mother’s records and the birth facility refers to a specific point in time, and needs to be accessed at most well child visits during the first year of life and at other times as needed. It should be used at more than just the first newborn visit. In addition, the system should have the ability to edit the information at any time, if it is found to contain confirmed errors.
LOINC codes that have been developed for newborn screening and for ACOG prenatal and delivery records should be used to define the data elements and the appropriate answer lists or formats. Any EHR that imports discrete data from HL7 Clinical Document Architecture (CDA level 3 electronic documents such as the Continuity of Care Record (CCR or c-CCR should be able to easily add functionality for importing future electronic newborn discharge summaries— providing that data elements in the CDA are identified by LOINC codes and can be mapped to data elements in the EHR, which are also identified by the same LOINC codes. Therefore, preserving LOINC codes is important to identify data elements inside an EHR and and not just in external messages, for data that are imported (such as data from the mother’s EHR and to re-export those same codes in future messages or documents. Importing birth data from electronic messages or documents is the preferred method for capturing birth data but is not required to meet this requirement for a child EHR.

Neonatal physical exam, including symmetry (as symmetrical or nonsymmetrical growth retardation was not included because it is narrative text and not discrete data. It will be available in a child’s EHR as age-specific physical examination in the hospital or initial newborn visits and any significant findings should be included in the problems list (such as a heart murmur or hip click Birth order for familial rank (not birth order for multiple births such as twins was not included because it is better to use a family history pedigree, and birth order (oldest to youngest will change over time in modern blended families. Maternal demographic data was not included and should be available as part of registration or family history data, but maternal age at time of birth is part of the core data elements list.

*Birth Information Data Elements*
There are several possible sources of a birth information data elements list. The initial list included below is based on requirements from the child EHR. Additional lists that should be consider include the ACOG prenatal, delivery, and initial newborn record as well as information required for ordering and reporting newborn screening results (available at NLM newborn screening codes Web site
