The published standard is available on the Ministry of Health website.


To provide high quality maternity care in New Zealand we need to underpin maternity practice with information that supports the care of women, babies and their family/whānau, continuity of care, best practice, and analytics.

The HISO 10050.2:2019 Maternity Care Summary Standard is designed to ensure that information related to maternity care is consistently recorded. Standardised data will enable services to be meaningfully benchmarked against each other. A meaningful data set reflecting maternity information and services can be shared between community and hospital providers to support continuity of care.

The new standard build on and will significantly extend the current standard HISO 10050.1:2016 Maternity Care Summary Standard (Booking Information).
