  4. Agenda • Introductions • Overview of the Newborn Hearing Screening Program (NHSP) • Goals of the NHSP/EDHI • Tracking and Monitoring Challenges • Who is Neometrics? • Overview of the Data Management Service • Next Steps California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  5. Overview of NHSP • Established in 1998 by California Law as the Newborn and Infant Hearing Screening, Tracking and Intervention Act. • Requirements of the 1998 law: • Every CCS-Approved general acute care hospital with licensed perinatal services shall offer a hearing screening test using protocols approved by the State. • Expansion in 2008: • The law was further amended to include: every general acute care hospital with licensed perinatal services shall administer to every newborn, upon birth admission, a hearing screening test. California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  6. Overview of NHSP (continued) • Implemented in 2000 • NHSP follows the national EHDI guidelines • Requires all hospitals with licensed perinatal services and/or NICU to report to DHCS or designee California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  7. Overview of NHSP (continued) • Hearing Coordination Centers • Unique to California • Assures families are linked with services, minimizing the number of babies lost to follow-up • Regional support to all hospitals by: • Providing technical assistance and consultation to hospitals in setting up and maintaining programs • Certifying inpatient screening providers • Collecting data California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  8. Overview of NHSP (continued) • Hearing Coordination Centers (continued) • Tracking Infants • Screening/rescreening • Diagnostic services • Notification of PCP • Early Start referrals • Quality assurance activities • Monitor hospital screening and referral rates • Provide feedback to hospitals • Identify training opportunities • Education and community outreach California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  9. Agenda • Introductions • Overview of the Newborn Hearing Screening Program (NHSP) • Goals of the NHSP/EDHI • Tracking and Monitoring Challenges • Who is Neometrics? • Overview of the Data Management Service • Next Steps California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  10. Why We Are Here • Why is Data Management Service (DMS) critical to the NHSP? • Manual tracking system • Expansion of the program • HCCs databases • Consolidation of requirements • Hospital insight • Limited resources • Mandatory fields • Risk factors

  11. Goals of the Program • 1 – 3 – 6 Goals • 1 month of age: hearing screening to all newborns • 3 months of age: diagnostic audiologic evaluation to all newborns who do not pass the screening • 6 months of age: entry into early intervention services, for newborns with hearing loss • Informational materials to families • Results to primary care providers California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  12. Reporting Requirements • DHCS to CDC • Mandatory reporting required to the CDC (Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) • HCCs to DHCS • Mandatory reporting to DHCS quarterly on all activities including data reported by hospitals, as well as ad-hoc reports • Hospitals to HCCs • Patient-specific demographic data • Results of screens California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  13. Why We Screen • Hearing loss occurs more frequently than any other congenital condition • Negative consequences of late identification of hearing loss • Early identification and intervention by 6 months of age has shown to result in age-appropriate language development California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  14. Agenda • Introductions • Overview of the Newborn Hearing Screening Program (NHSP) • Goals of the NHSP/EDHI • Tracking and Monitoring Challenges • Who is Neometrics? • Overview of the Data Management Service • Next Steps California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  15. Current Reporting Challenges Difficulties when: • Manually tracking and reviewing of records • Tracking babies transferring to another hospital • Identifying babies not screened as inpatient • Hospital monitoring screen and refer rates • Reporting process California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  16. Current system: In manual form, you are unable to Search Report Collate Review DMS Benefits: Hospitals get real-time data on screen status Ad-hoc reports can be generated by hospital users Hospital users can generate work lists as needed Hospital can monitor screener performance Challenge: Manual Review of Data California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  17. Current system: Receiving hospital not always aware of screen status Receiving hospital not always aware if baby is in non NICU unit Required to send in status reports for all transferred babies DMS Benefits: Transfers are recorded as they occur Hospitals are no longer required to generate transfer reports Real-time status is available for State, HCC and hospital users Audit trail details the history of movement Automatic action creation helps curb lost to follow-up Challenge: Managing Transfers California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  18. Current system: Hospital birth log is the only mechanism that can be used to determine whether or not a baby has been missed Easy to miss babies No central collection point for data DMS Benefits: Reports can be generated to reconcile birth log to the DMS data Immediate ID of infants not screened Challenge: Identifying Missed Babies California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  19. Current system: It is not possible to easily determine screen and refer rates for a hospital. DMS Benefits: Central data collection point captures screen and refer rates. Data can be used for QA for hospital staff to improve screening process Data can be used for staff education Challenge: Monitoring of Hospital Screen & Refer Rates California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program

  20. Current system: Hospitals are required to report information via paper and FAX: IRF Weekly reports Monthly report Transfer Status Reports DMS Benefits: Hospitals are no longer required to report information via paper and FAX: IRF forms Weekly reports Monthly report Transfer Status Reports Challenge:Reporting Process California Department of Health Care ServicesNewborn Hearing Screening Program
