PROBLEM/PURPOSE: Low birth weight (LBW) and prematurity are common problems in the US and in rural areas. Prior to planning interventions to prevent LBW, it is important for clinicians and researchers to document outcomes so as to target areas of need within a community. The specific aims of this study were: 1.Develop a data base to link data on prenatal care processes and outcomes at a rural health center with delivery outcomes accomplished at the delivering hospital. 2. Describe pregnancy outcomes for patients cared for prenatally in a rural health center and analyze the impact of selected risk factors on outcomes. SAMPLE: 200 charts were reviewed. This is inclusive of all women who sought care from the rural center since the inception of the prenatal program. DESIGN: Prenatal records were reviewed. Data from delivery were available in a computerized database at the delivering hospital.All variables entered into the data base were analyzed paying attention to those linked to LBW and prematurity. Results will be reported. IMPLICATIONS: Development and testing of community based interventions can be based on the results of this study. In addition, the data system developed can serve as a model for other rural health centers.
