Groups Report

Reporting and Benchmarking

  • Compare performance of each hospital in the group to one another in a special annual report
  • Use our Nightingale Internet Reporting System to compare center data for each hospital in the group to consolidated data about all centers in the group and to other benchmarks provided by VON (all VON, regional, NICU type, etc.)
  • Control whether the individual hospital data in your group reporting identifies the participating center’s data or is blinded
  • Additional custom group reporting is available
  • Manage who has access to view reporting about your group

Consolidated Data Submission

VON’s free data collection and submission software, eNICQ, has been designed to allow groups of centers to work together using a single centralized database to collect data for multiple hospitals. This allows health systems and regional groups to consolidate their efforts and pool resources to reduce the cost in equipment and IT time required to maintain databases for the collection and submission of VON data. For more information about establishing a centralized database installation for multiple sites please contact
