Vitally Important: Improving the Timeliness of Vital Statistics to Advance MCH. Year Developed: 2015. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Patricia W. Potrzebowski, PhD; Glenn Copeland, MBA; John Paulson. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory. Length: n.a.. Presentation Slides

Annotation: This presentation focuses on how states are working to improve vital statistics timeliness and data sharing, and how this is helping to inform and improve programs and health outcomes for women and infants. Topics include the importance and need for improving timeliness of vital records data; efforts underway to make vital statistics more current and thus more useful for public health program purposes; work being done to provide more timely data on infant mortality in Michigan in order to better inform programs working to improve outcomes, with a focus on the Collaborative Improvement & Innovation Network (COIIN) to Reduce Infant Mortality; and how Ohio compiles, augments, and uses the data in its public health data warehouse with a focus on using the State and Territorial Exchange of Vital Events (STEVE) System. Vital statistics—the data and health indicators collected from vital records on births and deaths—are an important source of data for answering national and state health questions. Birth and death records allow states to track maternal, fetal, and infant mortality, adverse birth outcomes, delivery characteristics, and maternal risk factors, among other statistics. Improving the timeliness of these records is essential to making sure they are most useful for monitoring and advancing public health efforts in real time.

Progress on the Redesign of the NSCH and the Data Resource Center. Year Developed: 2015. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Rheem Ghandour, DrPH, MPA; Christina Bethell, PhD, MBA, MPH. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is funded and directed by MCHB with data collection coordinated by the U.S. Census Bureau. The survey examines the physical and emotional health of children from birth through 17 years of age with emphasis on factors that may be related to the well-being of children, including medical homes, family interactions, parental health, school experiences, and neighborhood safety. It has been redesigned, and will now also include new and revised content on a range of topics, including items of special relevance to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and their families. The speakers will give an overview of the new NSCH as well as show how the Data Resource Center (DRC) resources can help optimize the use of the NSCH as well as other data on child and family health.

Clusters, Maps, and Hotspots: Small Area Analysis in Maternal and Child Health. Year Developed: 2015. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Russell S. Kirby, PhD, MS, FACE; Michael Kramer, PhD, MMSc; Thomas J. Stopka, PhD, MHS . Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes. Slides

Annotation: Maternal and child health professionals are increasingly interested in how health outcomes, risk factors, and health resources vary over space and time. Knowledge about how these factors differ across small segments of the population, such as across different counties or neighborhoods, can help health professionals design interventions for the populations who are most at need. Innovative and rigorous small area analyses are needed to help inform public health decisions that can improve maternal and child health. This DataSpeak presentation gives an overview of the applications of small area analysis for maternal and child health with real world examples based on these analyses.

Learning Objectives: • Review basic principles of mapping and its uses for studying spatial aspects of health phenomena. • Introduction to small area analysis.
