What is Peridos?

Peridos is a national system into which prenatal screening data are saved. It is a perinatal (around birth) file to help regional prenatal screening centres in the Netherlands protect the screening quality. Het Palet, like all other screening centres in the Netherlands, submits data in Peridos.

Peridos contains information on healthcare providers and healthcare organisations that have entered into a contract with one of the eight regional centres. These contracts relate to counselling discussions and prenatal screening sessions held: Structural Echoscopic Examination (20 weeks’ ultrasound) and NT-measurement (combined test).

Healthcare data are recorded to help monitor the quality of prenatal screening tests.
On request, after the screening test your personal data will be removed from Peridos. Make sure you inform your obstetrician.
