Objectives: This study was conducted to determine the comprehensive national MDS for prematurity information management system (IMSPIMDS) in Iran.
Methods: This research is a cross-sectional study with three steps including systematic review, focus group discussion, and Delphi technique. A systematic review was conducted in relevant databases. Then a focus group discussion was used to classify the extracted data elements by contributing specializing in various fields experts. Finally, MDSs were chosen through the decision Delphi technique in two rounds. Collected data were analyzed using IBM statistics SPSS 26.

Conclusions: The existence of national MDS as the core of the premature newborn surveillance program is essential and leads to appropriate decisions. We developed and internally validated a minimum data set for prematurity researches. This study generated new knowledge to enable healthcare systems professionals to collect relevant and meaningful.
