Welcome to the State of California 

Health Information Exchange for Newborn Screening Results

Overview: This objective of this project is to extend the functionality of the State of CA’s Screening Information System application to provide Newborn Screening Test Results electronically in HL7 format for providers.

Overall, the project is intended to:

  • Provide an efficient solution for transmitting newborn screening results to hospitals and clinicians, and move away from paper-based manual processes.
  • Meet the goal of “Meaningful Use” for HIE since paper exchange does not conform to federal incentives toward EHR adoption and “Meaningful Use” of these systems. Providers have strong incentives to move away from paper as soon as possible.
