The Arkansas Reproductive Health Monitoring System (ARHMS) is a well established public health program in birth defect tracking. ARHMS, which is administered within Arkansas Children's Hospital, tracks birth defect trends, responds to inquiries from the public, provides the data infrastructure for scientific research, and performs prevention activities aimed at reducing the occurrence of birth defects.
We seek to identify and to describe patterns of birth defects in Arkansas in order to support scientific research. We hope to determine causes and therefore prevent birth defects among state and global populations.
We support scientific endeavors in birth defects and any public health activities that would like to utilize our data and resources. We welcome collaborations and do our best to contribute to inquiries related to the cause. If you are interested in our data, you can make data requests through this link below.
