Delaware Survey of Children's Health

Nemours has made a promise to protect the health of children not only through care delivery but through innovative programs and initiatives. That is exactly what we’re doing by hosting the Nemours Health & Prevention Services (NHPS) Datacenter. The Delaware Survey of Children's Health (DSCH), sponsored by Nemours Children's Health System (Nemours), is one of the most comprehensive health surveillance instruments for Delaware children ages birth through 17 years. The Datacenter is designed to facilitate more data-driven decision making in the field of child health promotion.
