Children's Hospitals Neonatal Database

CHND was developed to meet the data acquisition and analytics required for comparative quality and outcome measures for the unique population of medically complex neonates and infants treated in Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) at children’s hospitals.

Many of these high-acuity infants have
surgical problems
congenital anomalies
serious acquired complications of preterm birth

With an average 25-day length of stay and the multiple services they require after discharge, these infants represent one of the highest resource utilization groups of any pediatric population. CHND is the largest clinically valid data set for this unique patient population.
