Accelerates Public Health Interoperability with Web-Based Platform
for Newborn Heart Screening
OZ Systems partnered with CCHD screening program leaders, Dr.
“There’s more to early detection and timely care than just doing a test. Having the ability to improve safety and efficiency for our health professionals and also giving a clear view of results and follow-up for each baby is important for our hospitals and for public health agencies,” said Dr.
The CNHS Congenital Heart Disease Screening Program has been in practice since 2009, and has assisted hospitals and public health programs around the country and internationally, providing a model for implementing a quality program. The team created a CCHD screening toolkit that has been sent to over 1200 hospitals, associations and advocates who have expressed interest in improving detection of serious CHD in the newborn period. The inclusion of a child health screening information system closes an important loop and facilitates the optimal care of newborns.
OZ Systems’ partnership with CNHS is an extension of work that began 17 years ago with Emeritus Director of Speech and Hearing, Dr.
The expansion of the new CCHD information system also builds on OZ Systems’ establishment of an Integrated Child Electronic Public Health Record. The electronic record is established at birth, integrates early hearing with genetic and metabolic screening information and can grow as the child does. The deployment of these critical health information systems for newborn care further demonstrate OZ Systems’ clinical and administrative value to both public health and birthing facilities nationally and internationally.
