Objective To assess the validity of clinical information held on a regional maternity database, the St Mary's Maternity Information System (SMMIS).
Design A retrospective review of 892 maternity case notes and matched SMMIS records, by a midwife trained in clinical coding techniques.
Setting Three maternity units in the North West Thames Region.
Main outcome measures Percentage agreement for 17 directly recorded SMMIS data items and equivalent data abstracted from the notes.
Frequencies of diagnosis codes abstracted from case notes, as compared with those generated by SMMIS on the basis of directly recorded data.
Results A generally high level of agreement was observed between the abstracts of the notes and the SMMIS records.
