LIFESPAN DATA INTEGRATION OPTIONAL MODULE

ABOUT THE LIFESPAN DATA INTEGRATION OPTIONAL MODULE

The Lifespan Data Integration Module maintains the maternal infant data hub (MIDH) through continuously integrating maternal, neonatal, and pediatric records to create a regional perinatal research data repository. Our goal is to provide a core resource for maternal and child health providers, policy-makers, epidemiologists, community agencies and any stakeholder in maternal and child health.

Efforts to improve maternal and child population health outcomes require access to reliable and timely data while appropriately addressing challenges related to regulatory barriers, privacy issues, data ownership, and technical limitations. 

 

The CCTST aims to address these challenges through the Lifespan Data Integration Module: 


Module goals include: 

  1. Supporting seamless integration of maternal, neonatal, and pediatric records to establish a population-based, regional perinatal research data repository, or data hub, which would also enable linkage to ancillary data sets using individual level identifiers or geocoded address information.

  2. Investigating longitudinal lifespan exposures before, during, and after pregnancy that impact disease susceptibility and health trajectories. 

Core Components of the Lifespan Data Integration Module:


Maternal and child electronic health care records from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) are integrated and linked to regional physician billing records, U.S. census data, home visiting program data (Every Child Succeeds) and state vital records (Figure 1).

Population:
  • Years represented in datahub: 2013-Current
    (updated quarterly)

  • The hub includes the following:

    • >150,000 newborns (regional billing records)

    • >30,000 maternal and child UCMC electronic
      medical records

    • >5,500 mother-child dyads
