Improving access to information in maternity services

In autumn an information standards notice (ISN) will be published to announce the new Maternity Record Standard under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Standardising data capture will support interoperable record sharing, giving everyone involved in ante-natal care quicker access to information, regardless of whether they are in a hospital or community setting. Organisations will have 12 months from publication of the ISN to comply with the standard.
