EuroNeoNet (ENN) is a specialized neonatal network to provide networking to European neonatologists and other stakeholders a tool to perform quality assurance and benchmarking, and a framework to facilitate the development of high-quality outcome epidemiological research, implement quality improvement initiatives and randomized clinical trials. ENN is affiliated to the European Society for Paediatric Research and the European Society for Neonatology (ESPR/ESN).

The ENN Mission is to enhance neonatal networking to help neonatologist to promote a culture for quality of care improvements and patient safety, family-centered and developmental care and dissemination of evidence-based interventions, e-learning, and to effectively conduct academically-driven clinical trials, case-control, cohort, cluster and nested studies.

Our Vision statement is that all Very Low-Gestational Age (VLGA, <32 weeks) and Very-Low-Birth-Weight (VLBW, <1500 g) newborn infants born in Europe, receive the best possible health care no matter where born, by preventing any existing inequalities and that all Neonatal Units shear a standardized perinatal risk and protective factors, neonatal interventions and short- and long-term outcomes for those tinny and vulnerable infants.

Our organization values are guided by the democratic, transparency, equal opportunity, values common to the European culture, and to shear all information gathered to help any interested stakeholders.

Our strategic aim is to consolidate a standardized set of health indicators to assess the quality of health care delivered to very premature infants by European institutions, regions and countries. We aim to reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality and improve their health status at 2 years, detect any inequalities that might exist.

Communication to the key interested stakeholders is mainly performed via our interactive website (www.euroneonet.org), but periodic reports, newsletters, leaflets, publications, abstracts and presentations are also periodically and widely disseminated.

The general objective of the project is to identify and validate a set of Day Surgery (DS) indicators and to develop the Information Systems on DS in Europe. This project proposes to analyse DS data and health indicators both at international organizations and MSs level. It will also identify and test potential indicators. DS development represents a priority being an important opportunity for health systems reorganization.
