BORN Information System

BORN Information System

The BORN Information System (BIS) enables the collection of, and access to, data on every birth and young child in Ontario. Sourced from hospitals, labs, midwifery practice groups and clinical programs, the data are collected through a variety of mechanisms including HL7, batch upload, and manual entry. Information is reported via standard reports and analytical tools within the BIS.
