New Perinatal Data Registry

Perinatal Services BC is developing a new web-based BC Perinatal Data Registry (PDR) that will collect high-quality perinatal data with improved reporting capabilities and accessibility for all provincial stakeholders.
The new architecture will enable integration with external clinical systems, timely access to data, and scalability in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. 

There will be substantial benefits from the new PDR, including improved system and data quality, expanded scope, cost efficiencies, increased user productivity and satisfaction, and improved patient care.

Change Requests

All new requests will be evaluated for inclusion in Phase 2. 

Please complete the Change Request Form and submit it to Philip Pang, PDR Project Manager.

There are two parts on the form. If the request does not impact data fields or perinatal forms, only Part 1 needs to be completed. If the request directly impacts data fields or perinatal forms, Part 2 also needs to be completed. For Part 2, describe what you would like to change, propose a new definition, including reason for the change, and include as much as possible about the feasibility of capturing the new data as well as any other supporting information, including a literature search and references.

Change Request Process

Change requests must be submitted to Philip Pang, PDR Project Manager.

Only fully completed forms will be accepted.

All new change requests will be evaluated for inclusion in Phase 2.
The Project Change Control Committee will be responsible for assessing all change requests and making recommendations to the PDR Steering Committee.

Evaluation criteria includes:

  • Is there supporting evidence for the documented benefits? 
  • Is the change technically feasible?
  • Will it alter business requirements?
  • Is there a workaround?
  • Will additional funding be needed?
  • Will it delay the project?
For change requests that pass evaluation, the Project Change Control Committee will develop potential solutions to implement the changes and recommend the best solution to the PDR Steering Committee.

The PDR Steering Committee will make the final decision on whether a change is implemented. The PDR Project Manager will communicate all decisions made by the PDR Steering Committee.

The PDR Project Manager will implement all approved requests, which will include

  • developing specifications and confirming business requirements;
  • engaging subject matter experts; 
  • working with PSBC to update forms;
  • reprioritizing features and functionality;
  • readjusting timelines; and 
  • seeking new funding.
If you have any questions, please contact Philip Pang, PDR Project Manager.
