Table 1 BORN maternal-newborn dashboard key performance indicators, definitions, and benchmarks

From: A mixed methods evaluation of the maternal-newborn dashboard in Ontario: dashboard attributes, contextual factors, and facilitators and barriers to use: a study protocol

Key performance indicators Target (green) Warning (yellow) Alert (red) Definitions
% % %
1. Proportion of newborn screening samples that are unsatisfactory for testing <2.0 2.0–3.0 >3.0 Number of newborn screening samples with unsatisfactory reason(s), expressed as a percentage of the total number of newborn screening samples submitted from a given hospital/midwifery practice. NOTE: Samples coded as unsatisfactory only due to collection at less than 24 h of age (i.e., there are no other reasons the sample has been deemed unsatisfactory) will not be considered as unsatisfactory for this analysis, since sample collection at less than 24 h of age is recommended in cases of early discharge, transfer, or transfusion.
2. Proportion of episiotomy in spontaneous vaginal births <13.0 13.0–17.0 >17.0 Number of women having a spontaneous vaginal birth who have an episiotomy expressed as a percentage of the total number of women having a spontaneous vaginal birth (in a given place and time).
3. Proportion of formula supplementation in term infants whose mothers intended to breastfeed <20.0 20.0–25.0 >25.0 Number of term live babies receiving formula supplementation expressed as a percentage of the total number of term babies whose mothers intended to breastfeed (in a given place and time).
4. Proportion of repeat cesarean section in low-risk women not in labor at term with no medical or obstetrical complications done prior to 39-week gestation <11.0 11.0–15.0 >15.0 Number of women with a cesarean section performed from >37 to <39-week gestation, expressed as a percentage of the total number of low-risk women having a repeat cesarean section at term (in a given place and time). NOTE: Repeat cesarean delivery in low-risk women is defined as a cesarean section performed prior to the onset of labor, among women with a singleton live birth, with a history of one or more previous cesarean sections and with no fetal or maternal health conditions or obstetrical complications. Women with indication for cesarean section are excluded, other than the following indications: fetal malposition/malpresentation, previous cesarean section, accommodates care provider/organization, maternal request.
5. Proportion of women delivering at term who had GBS screening at 35–37-week gestation >94.0 90.0–94.0 <90.0 Number of women having an unplanned cesarean section who deliver at term and have GBS screening at 35–37-week gestation expressed as a percentage of the total number of laboring women delivering at term (given place and time).
6. Proportion of women induced with an indication of post-dates who are less than 41-week gestation at delivery <5.0 5.0–10.0 >10.0 Number of women who were less than 41 weeks of gestation at delivery, expressed as a percentage of the total number of women who had labor induction and an indication for induction of “post‐dates pregnancy” (given place and time).
