Vermont Oxford Network

The Vermont Oxford Network is a voluntary collaboration to collect detailed clinical information about high-risk and very low birth weight infants in order to identify opportunities for improvement. The measures are collected by clinical review of medical records according to common definitions.

“Vermont Oxford Network (VON) is a non-profit voluntary collaboration of health care professionals dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical care for newborn infants and their families. Established in 1988, the Network is today comprised of over 800 Neonatal Intensive Care Units around the world. In support of its mission, the Network maintains a Database including information about the care and outcomes of high-risk newborn infants. The Database provides unique, reliable and confidential data to participating units for use in quality management, process improvement, internal audit and peer review.”
