Welcome to the High Risk Infant Follow-up Quality of Care Initiative (HRIF-QCI) Web-based Reporting System!
Children's Medical Services (CMS) Branch/California Children's Services (CCS) Program has worked with the CCS/California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) High Risk Infant Follow-up (HRIF) Quality of Care Initiative (QCI) to develop a web-based HRIF Reporting System to collect data for the CCS HRIF Program. The Reporting System will be able to identify quality improvement opportunities for NICUs in the reduction of long term morbidity; allow programs to compare their activities with all sites throughout the state; allow the state to assess site-specific successes; and support real-time case management. The system, collecting data on high risk infants up to their third birthday, enrolled in the CCS HRIF Program, will add value to the current CPQCC data already collected.
The California Children's Services (CCS) HRIF program was established to identify infants who might develop CCS-eligible conditions after discharge from a CCS-approved Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). CCS Program standards require that each CCS-approved NICU ensure the follow-up of discharged high risk infants and that each NICU shall either have an organized program or a written agreement for provision of these services by another CCS-approved NICU.
