HL7 Version 2.6 Implementation Guide: Newborn Screening for Critical Congenital Heart Defects (CCHD), Release 1

DESCRIPTION

Many seemingly healthy babies with Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) may suffer negative health outcomes if the birth defect is not identified shortly after birth. International efforts have precipitated both program and legislative initiatives to promote and/or mandate universal newborn screening for Critical Congenital Heart Disease using pulse oximetry devices. When pulse oximetry devices are able to exchange data with information systems, the use of standards helps with the seamless exchange of data and improve patient safety. This implementation guide focuses on the transmission of CCHD screening data from the device to the public health program, other potential recipients including providers and electronic health records.
