|AABC Perinatal Data Registry (PDR)|
What is the AABC Perinatal Data Registry™?
The AABC Perinatal Data Registry™ (PDR), (formerly Uniform Data Set (UDS)) is an online data registry for ongoing collection of perinatal data in all settings and by all providers. This data registry, developed by AABC over the past thirteen years, is designed to collect comprehensive data on both the process and outcomes of the midwifery model of care. The large prospective data set generated from the registry can make an important contribution to our ability to evaluate and improve the delivery of care to childbearing women and families. Not only will users of the PDR be contributing to important research for midwifery but they will also have the ability to use their own practice's data in a multitude of ways. Think about the value of that information when talking to insurers, legislators, regulators, and the mothers you serve.
Who can participate?
The PDR is designed for use by any maternity care provider. If your practice attends births in multiple sites, you can easily sort your data by birth site.
What does the AABC PDR cost?
AABC Birth Center members and Institutional members receive access to the PDR as a membership benefit. For others, annual subscriptions are available.
