Maternal Fetal Neonatal Database
Vanderbilt researchers and clinicians have developed a database and web application that tracks unborn fetuses as a separate patient population. Traditionally unborn fetuses are monitored and tracked for abnormalities and all of their information and documentation is placed within the mother’s medical chart. This program creates a separate medical file for the unborn fetus that is linked to the maternal medical file. This system allows clinicians to easily sort and track unborn fetus abnormalities and easily identify treatment options that have shown to be beneficial to that patient population, ultimately improving clinical outcomes.
