Quality at CM Health perineum after birth and during the postnatal period. An audit reviewing practice of birthing techniques and risk reducing strategies took place in July 2014 and a further follow up audit is proposed in late 2015 to re-evaluate progress.

Other Quality Initiatives Implementation of the Maternity Clinical Information System CM Health launched the roll out of the national MCIS in November 2014. A ‘soft’ launch was chosen to ensure that we could implement the transition from paper clinical records to an electronic record in a controlled way and address any software and business process changes as quickly as possible.

49 • Most self-employed LMC midwives • Allied health staff, including dieticians, physicians, cultural support, Pain team and physiotherapists • Neonatal unit SMO’s, neonatal nurse specialists and registrars and anaesthetists • Still to train –AUT student midwives, hearing screeners and Regional Public Health nurses(for BCG recording) As of the end of June: • 2785 women are recorded in the system • 106 birthed • 4 sets of twins • 15 Caesarean Sections – 2 elective, the remainder emergency

We are expecting the number of births of women in the system to increase significantly from July onwards, and the transition of all women to an electronic record (for their booking and registration, labour and birth and inpatient postnatal period for women under the care of a self-employed LMC midwife) by November 2015. The support requirements and additional staffing numbers will be significant over the next three months. At this stage the important linkages to the self-employed LMC and GP Management systems have not been implemented at the national level. We continue to work with the MoH on the development and implementation of these vital linkages as well as an integrated linkage to the GROW module.

The soft launch started with a small group of women booking with the DHB community midwifery services (with EDD May 15 onwards), increasing to full capacity of DHB bookings from February 2015 (with EDD from June 15 onwards). Booking for women with a self-employed LMC with an EDD from July 15 were entered into the MCIS from March 2015. To date over 600 Users have been trained including: • Community and case loading midwives • All core maternity unit staff • RMO and SMO obstetric teams • Administration and business support staff
