    • Abstract:
      Common features of successful, local-level, Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) Programs are identified by the National Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (NFIMR) Program, including medical records abstraction and home interviews, case reviews by a case review team (CRT), and community systems action recommendations implemented by a community action team (CAT). This paper presents Louisiana's FIMR program, an adaptation of NFIMR recommendations. In 2001, the Louisiana Maternal and Child Health Program began a statewide FIMR Network (LaFIMR) based on the NFIMR model. Geographic areas of focus, case identification, staffing, data collection methods, and CRT and CAT membership and activities include modifications of the NFIMR recommendations unique to LaFIMR implementation. Adaptations made to the NFIMR model were advantageous to LaFIMR's success. Specifically, LaFIMR geographic areas of interest cover multiple natural communities. Compared with independent FIMR programs elsewhere, LaFIMR represents a Title V Program-based coordinated network of regional LaFIMR teams offering opportunities for expanded partnerships. Primary sources for LaFIMR case identification include obituaries and hospital logs, with secondary identification available through vital records. Improvements in vital records data systems are expected to enhance future LaFIMR case identification. LaFIMR-identified records that are linked with vital event certificates provide enhanced contextual findings for reviews and support continuous quality improvement processes. These differences in the LaFIMR implementation reinforce the NFIMR-supported uniqueness of FIMR programs across the United States, and may encourage other FIMR programs to consider how adaptations to NFIMR recommendations could benefit their programs.
