The HRIF Reporting System includes reports designed to help HRIF clinics and NICUs turn data into action.
The Summary Reports provide an overview of the patients registered and receiving follow-up services in an HRIF clinic. The HRIF Summary Report includes data the individual patients seen and followed by an HRIF clinic, regardless of where the infants were born or discharged from. The NICU Summary Report includes data on individual patients that a NICU has referred for follow-up care, regardless of the location where they are receiving their follow-up services. These reports are updated in near real-time, allowing sites to access information about their successes and challenges; make comparisons across the state, and identify opportunities for quality improvement.
