Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

Coding to the disease classification of ICD-10-AM is the preferred method of coding admitted patients. However, for the perinatal data collection, the use of BPA is preferred as this is more detailed (see the metadata item Person—congenital malformations, code (BPA 1979) ANN.N[N]).

Comments:Help on this term

Required to monitor trends in the reported incidence of congenital malformations, to detect new drug and environmental teratogens, to analyse possible causes in epidemiological studies, and to determine survival rates and the utilisation of paediatric services.
