  2. 2.          <ul><li>The Midwifery and Maternity Providers Organisation. </li></ul><ul><li>The Midwifery and Maternity Providers Organisation (MMPO) was established by the New Zealand College of Midwives in 1997 to assist case loading (lead maternity carer) midwives with an efficient ‘ midwifery friendly ’ practice management service. </li></ul><ul><li>We are now the largest Maternity Provider Organisation in New Zealand, with a membership of about 750 midwives throughout the country. </li></ul><ul><li>We provide primary maternity ‘practice management’ support and advisory services as well as an integrated Maternity Practice Management System (MPMS) for those claiming on the Section 88 Maternity Notice. </li></ul>Supporting quality midwifery led maternity care for women in Aotearoa New Zealand

This includes inpatient care during labour and birth. </li></ul><ul><li>There are at least 19 pieces of information which the midwife is expected to import or export to or from external agencies, as well as record information on an average of 20 visits per woman over this time. </li></ul><ul><li>All of this takes place over a 9 month period for an average of 50 women per midwife. </li></ul><ul><li>Our midwives work within 80 maternity facilities spread throughout the 21 DHBs. They all have unique documentation requirements! </li></ul>Supporting quality midwifery led maternity care for women in Aotearoa New Zealand

  5. 5.    Woman Midwife Midwifery outcome data Payment claim forms Womans clinical notes Midwifery Standards Review Women held notes HealthPac MMPO Maternity Notes provide copies of data, for the woman, the midwife and claiming information. Response of the profession with the MMPO. We developed up a set of maternity notes which intuitively work the midwife through the entire process of care enabling her to meet the various requirements.

  6. 6.              <ul><li>We then worked with software developers to design a midwifery PMS </li></ul><ul><li>The MMPO developed a comprehensive set of maternity notes (held by both the mother and her midwife), linked to an electronic practice management system . </li></ul><ul><li>Taken together, the two components provide: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a shared set of clinical notes agreed by the provider and recipient of care, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a streamlined system for claim payments , </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a quality assurance mechanism for review of practice , </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a database for individual, practice and professional level outcomes monitoring. </li></ul></ul>Supporting quality midwifery led maternity care for women in Aotearoa New Zealand

  10. 10.              <ul><li>The next step …..development of an electronic maternity record </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Midwives have access to a ‘remote’ version of our PMS and submit claims and associated data to our main database in Christchurch. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The more adventurous had developed up ‘maternity notes’ in each section to use the PMS as a fully electronic record. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The profession were concerned about the ‘risk’ of not having hard copy documentation on decision-making and specific information sharing between the woman and midwife. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>How would electronic ‘notes’ stand up to scrutiny by MOH auditors, HDC, ACC, Coroners Court and/or at a Health Practitioners Disciplinary review? </li></ul></ul></ul>Supporting quality midwifery led maternity care for women in Aotearoa New Zealand
  11. 11.              <ul><li>We held a workshop with key informants to thrash out the issues and plot a way forward. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Attendees included Legal representation, midwifery advisors, LMC midwives, software designer, GP software designer, MOH. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>First questions centred around: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What information needs to be captured ?
