Hearing Screening, EHDI, Newborn Screening
Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs exist world-wide to help identify children with hearing loss. Because newborn hearing loss is a neuro-developmental emergency, children with hearing loss need to be identified shortly after birth to help them achieve better communication outcomes. This implementation guide focuses on the transmission of the hearing screening data elements from the hearing screening device to a recipient of data, which may be an electronic health record (EHR) or a Public Health Information System.
These are categories of potential users, implementers, or other interested parties such as those that are indicated on the Project Scope Statement under “Stakeholders/Vendors/Providers”. Select those that are applicable, or suggest others:

Enables newborn hearing screening information to be transmitted from a point of care screening device to an interested consumer such as public health or an EHR in a standard format
