Neonatal care

Swedish Neonatal Quality Register (SNQ)

Registry category: Paediatric health

Certification level: 1

Central personal data controller (CPUA): Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset

The Neonatal Register SNQ contains information on newborn infants admitted to neonatal care, and longitudinal follow-up data for selected high-risk patients assessed at 2 and 5½ years of age.

The mission for SNQ is to provide data to professionals, administrators and families that can stimulate quality improvement and research. The information gathered in SNQ forms an important foundation for the quality improvement work that is continuously carried out in Swedish neonatal care. The information in the register illustrates how interventions and outcomes vary over time and across the country, and how these variations affect the results of the neonatal care system and the children’s future health.
