Costs of smoking during pregnancy: development of the Maternal and Child Health Smoking Attributable Mortality, Morbidity and Economic Costs (MCHSAMMEC) software

Abstract

The development and availability is described of new, user friendly software, the Maternal and Child Health Smoking Attributable Mortality, Morbidity and Economic Costs (MCHSAMMEC), that will allow states and other entities to estimate pregnancy related, smoking attributable costs for their population. The methodology underlying the MCHSAMMEC software, including calculations used in the prevalence based analysis of smoking attributable mortality and costs of infant neonatal care, are described, along with design and data management features and possible applications of the software for policy and program development at various levels of the health care system.
