OZ Systems, MDH, CDC to present findings on newborn screening

Arlington, Texas-based OZ Systems, the Minnesota Department of Health's Newborn Screening Program and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will present findings on newborn screening technology during the Public Health Informatics Conference in Atlanta on Aug. 24.

Their presentation, "Using Cutting Edge Technology to Improve Quality in Newborn Screening: A Public Health Initiative," will explore the results of the MNScreen project.

The project, implemented in 2014, gathers and transmits all of a newborn's health information into one record. MNScreen relies on OZ Systems' eSP and OZ STAR systems, as well as its Telepathy CCHD software.

Sixty-nine of Minnesota's 90 hospitals are using MNScreen. The remaining 21 hospitals plan to implement the system by the end of October 2016.
