Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes Reporting System (APORS)
QC 06:03 APORS
When a child's parents consent, follow-up services are provided by public health nurses at local health departments. These services can be provided for two years and are prescribed in regulation (Section 640.100(b) of the Regionalized Perinatal Health Care Code (77 Ill. Adm. Code 640.)) The High Risk Infant Follow-up Program is a component of Family Case Management and relates to many other IDHS programs, including the Special Supplement Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), Primary Care, and the Early Intervention Program. Referrals to these and other programs are made, by public health nurses, depending on the needs of the family.
This report evaluates the timing and type of follow-up services provided to children referred by APORS. It also identifies certain areas that could be improved to allow better evaluation in the future.
