Data

Encounter & Alphabetical List

The BORN Information System is organized by encounters of care across the continuum. An encounter involves an interaction between the patient/client and the provider of services, (e.g. out-patient care management, hospital or home birth experiences, etc.). Certain data elements are common across encounters. Wherever possible, data will pre-populate subsequent encounters, thereby reducing duplication of data entry. This model enables program-specific analysis by encounter, or analysis of aggregated data by population and health system.
