AbstractThe amount of data generated by health information technology systems is staggering, and using those data to make meaningful care decisions that improve patient outcomes is difficult. The purpose of this article is to describe the Maternal Health Information Initiative, a multidisciplinary group of maternity care stakeholders charged with standardizing maternity care data. Complementary strategies that practicing clinicians can use to support this initiative and improve the usability of maternity care data are provided.
