Mother-Infant Linkage Table

Project Title Mother-Infant Linkage Table
Description

The Mother-Infant Linkage (MIL) Table was added to the Sentinel Common Data Model (SCDM) in October 2018. 

This enhancement was added to enable routine evaluation of medical product exposures during pregnancy on outcomes in infants. To facilitate linkage, Sentinel Operations Center has developed a reusable program package to identify mothers and infants in the Sentinel Distributed Database. The Quality Assurance program evaluates whether the data in the table conforms to SCDM specifications, and it identifies anomalies that require further investigation or explanation (e.g., relatively high multiple-birth rate compared to national average).
