BORN Ontario Resources

Midwives and other obstetrical care providers in Ontario enter client data in the Better Outcomes Registry Network (BORN). Most midwives are intimately familiar with the BORN Information System (BIS), the web-based interface midwives use to manually enter their clients’ information. While BORN data entry can be time-consuming, the information available in BORN is a crucial resource for midwifery researchers, policy makers and other midwifery stakeholders, who look to BORN for high-quality data on the outcomes of midwifery care. The AOM has created several resources, including guidance specific to consultations and transfers of care, to assist midwives in entering data into the BIS.

There are two routes midwives can access BORN data: BORN clinical reports and custom data requests.

See our infographic below for some key midwifery-relevant data retrieved from both clinical reports and custom data requests.
