About us


The NZ Mortality Review Data Group—Te Rōpū Kohi Pitopito Mōhiotanga mō te Taka Mate—was established in 2003 to support the national Child and Youth Mortality Review Committee (CYMRC). We now also support the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality (established 2006) and Perioperative Mortality (since 2016) Review Committees.

We have a contract with the Health Quality & Safety Commission to receive and store data, manage a database, develop and maintain secure websites for data entry, and provide data and research support for the above committees.

We are also heavily involved in the CYMRC research programme. Having been involved from the inception of the first still-existing national mortality review committee in 2002, we have a wealth of experience and expertise in this area.
