We developed a web-based database to track patients in the Penn Family Planning and Pregnancy Loss Center at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The patients to identify are individuals coming to our clinic for induced abortion, spontaneous abortion, and contraceptive consultation. The database is almost completed; we anticipate final completion by the end of June, 2011. Once it is completed, we will be ready to enter the data and pilot the database here at Penn, with the hopes of engaging centers across the country.
