Introducing the MatNeo Data Hub

One recommendation of ‘The Best Start – A Five Year Forward Plan for Maternity and Neonatal Care in Scotland’ was to establish a Maternity and Neonatal Data Hub. Another was that “…national level maternity and neonatal dashboards should be developed to facilitate benchmarking and reduce variations in care”.

The Scottish Perinatal Network is one of the five partners in the Maternity and Neonatal Data Hub for Scotland.  The Data Hub programme is managed by Public Health Scotland. The other three partners are Healthcare Improvement ScotlandScottish Government, and National Records of Scotland.


Programme Workstreams

The programme is funded by the Scottish Government and has five workstreams:

  1. Manage a visible Maternity and Neonatal Data Hub for Scotland partnership
  2. Align Maternity and Neonatal data collection, extraction and data flow
  3. Establish new all-Scotland maternity data sets
  4. Routine collection of data on specialist neonatal care
  5. Data displays showing maternity and neonatal CORE measures
