The multispecialty approach to the care of children with clefts is highly recommended. A research registry can be of invaluable assistance to physicians and researchers by providing an available panel of patient information that could assist in understanding the patients they are serving, utilization of health care services, and the design and implementation of research studies to improve patient care. The Cleft Lip/Palate and Craniofacial Anomalies Registry may be functioning with a mission to promote better understanding of cleft lip/palate and craniofacial anomalies and to improve patient care and health care planning. Data collection can provide better resources for future interventional studies. As it helps to have an accurate picture of the childrens number in need of treatment in a population.
