The Department of Pediatrics and the Divisions of Pediatric Cardiology and Neonatology implement reporting of results of newborn critical congenital heart disease screening from U-M and support of the process for other birthing centers in the state.
A process of extracting data from the EMR and submitting to the state electronically was established for UMHS. Education for practitioners in the state was provided by UMHS faculty and staff. The Division of Pediatric Cardiology is establishing a process for exploring Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart database compared to the CCHD screening data for quality assessment purposes. This is a unique feature of the Michigan process compared to other states.
