Newborn screening quality indicators (QIs) are utilized to provide longitudinal comparisons within a program as well as comparisons to aggregate data across programs. These eight QIs have undergone iterative evaluation by NBS partners to assure agreement on definitions.
You are able to download and view these QIs for entry into the data repository. The data dictionary and quality indicator definition template map are also accessible to aid in generating the appropriate data for the QI templates. For more information regarding QIs, including complete definitions and helpful tips, please view the QI Source Document.
