Perinatal & Newborn Health Hub

The Perinatal and Newborn Health Hub is an online, clinical resource hub designed specifically for perinatal and newborn health professionals in British Columbia.

 The Hub will centralize current and evidence-based information resources in perinatal and newborn care making it more accessible for health professionals providing high quality, standardized care for pregnant women/individuals, their newborns and their family. 

Development of the Hub is in response to care provider requests, and a key priority of the Maternity Services Strategy.

Project progress (completed to date)

  • Current state assessed (July-August 2021): Extensive clinical end-user engagement, through surveys and focused interviews, helped identify the current state of Perinatal Services BC's information resources (accessibility, format, currency, etc.). 
  • Requirements established (September - October 2021): Based on feedback from the current state assessment, a list of requirements was developed to inform what would be necessary to meet the needs of clinical end users. 
  • Phase 1 content (November - March 2022): Writers completed content related to first and second trimester. Facilitated groups of clinical reviewers and subject matter experts provided several rounds of feedback to finalize the content for approval. 
  • Content creation: (March 2022 - present). External reviews to validate written content.  Over 100 information resources at different stages of the content development process.
  • Prototype development and user feedback solicited: (March 2022 - September 2022)
  • Onboarding product developing consultant: (December 2022 - February 2023)
  • Developing minimal viable Hub product: (December 2022 – April 2023) 

Next steps

  • Recruiting users and testing minimal viable product: (April - May 2023)
  • Iteratively improving the Hub and preparing for launch: (present to end of 2023)
