Processed by a computerized medical birth registry system, the birth records of 20,103 deliveries, from February 1992 to February 1993, were digitized with medium registry. From January 1, to February 28, 1993, the original records (n = 2,840 cases) of all 10 collaborative hospitals were requested for assessment of the data quality. Thirty-six items were scored, data of poor quality was found in 8 items; acceptable quality in 4 items; and good quality in 28 items. The feasibility of data transfer by floppy disc and per modem was evaluated. This registry system had shortened data processing time effectively and improved mutual feedback between data center and delivery units. Errors resulting from technical faults originating in preparation of the data for computerizing at hospital level could be effectively reduced. The validity of diagnosis remained as the major source of errors.
