*Important* Updates for Genomics and Newborn Screening Stakeholders
The ISDH Genomics and Newborn Screening Newsletter-Vol. 1 Summer 2018 has important updates and information regarding rule changes coming this July 1st, 2018.
This rule is written that every infant must be screened 24 hours after birth and not later than 48 hours after birth. The intent is to draw no earlier than 24 hours (which would require a repeat), but to draw soon after 24 hours in order to improve rapid identification of disease and timeliness of connecting Hoosier families with needed resources. The draw can occur between 24 hours and 48 hours and meet the requirement of the law.
If you have any questions or additional need of support in implementing this change, please contact us at ISDHNBS@isdh.IN.gov.
