A computerized follow up system of obstetric and genetic care

A computerized follow up system of obstetric and genetic care

Orvosi Hetilap 131(15): 803-806

The authors have implemented and introduced a new filing system representing the complexity of obstetric, genetic and neonatal care for the three counties of the Eastern part of Hungary. Data about the pre-, peri- and postnatal management are supplied by the genetic/teratologic, obstetric, neonatal and pathological units and processed at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University Medical School of Debrecen with an IBM compatible AT computer. This computerised registry is based on the personal identification number, so it is easy to handle for storing data about the course and outcome of a large number of pregnancies as well as the detection and follow-up of fetal malformations and genetic diseases. The computer register is suitable for easy and systematic storage of the more than 20 thousand pregnancies screened by both maternal serum AFP and ultrasound including nearly 500 prenatal diagnosis cases per year. When devising the system, the classic parameters of the "revised Tauffer statistics" have been taken into consideration, but the emphasis has been put mostly on the assessment of fetal/infantile health status and the prevention of malformations and genetic diseases. This computerised system greatly facilitates the correct assessment of statistical parameters in related medical fields and provides better possibilities for studying the cause and effect relationship between the efficacy of medical care and perinatal events.
