Newborn Screening Coding and Terminology Guide
This guide for State health officials and physicians promotes and facilitates the use of electronic health data standards in recording and transmitting newborn screening test results. The Web site provides physicians with standard codes and terminology for newborn tests and the conditions infants are screened for to reduce variations in how screenings are conducted and results are recorded. The guide was developed by the Department of Health and Human Services; Health Resources and Services Administration; National Institutes of Health; National Library of Medicine; and Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. The web-based guide also has PDF, Word, and Excel documents, requiring Adobe Reader, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel.
