Quality Indicators


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 careful, iterative evaluation by stakeholders 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 definitions, please view the QI Source Document.
