Australian Congenital Anomalies Monitoring System 


The Australian Congenital Anomalies Monitoring System (ACAMS) contains data based on notifications of major congenital anomalies to individual registers of congenital conditions and birth defects registers in New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia and on data collected on congenital anomalies in Queensland, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. The Northern Territory is currently unable to provide data in a format enabling it to be compiled with data from the other states and territories.

Congenital anomalies are mainly notified from data collected as part of perinatal collections. Other sources of data include perinatal death certificates, cytogenetic or pathology reports, admitted patient data, maternal and child health nurses and medical officers.

Registry Location Australia
Registry Participation ACAMS is a collation of data supplied from individual state and territory collections.
