Child Health Information System Collaborative Cooperative Agreement: The purpose of this grant activity is to assist States and the Regional Genetic Services and Newborn Screening Collaboratives in enhancing their public health information technology infrastructure to support the integration of their newborn screening programs with other public child health programs and public and private health care delivery systems to enhance care for newborns and children with or at risk for heritable disorders, as recommended in 2000 by the American Academy of Pediatrics Newborn Screening Task Force. An integrated child health information system will enhance States' ability to promote and monitor newborns' early access to care and outcomes related to child health. One project, A Newborn Screening Informatics Practice Network (SIP), will be funded. The project will support State public health agencies' integration of child health programs and their information systems for use across public health programs and accessible by private health care providers and families to facilitate timely data exchange and the assessment and prompt provision of appropriate services to ensure optimal health for all children. The SIP will support States' and the Regional Genetic Services and Newborn Screening Collaboratives' use of their existing integrated early child health information systems to address the problems of assessment and assurance facing newborn screening programs. The SIP will develop a community of practice focusing on the unique challenges of integrating child health information systems, facilitating peer to peer knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving to help its members move their systems integration projects forward more effectively, and develop documented solutions that will benefit the integration projects represented within the community of practice and beyond. Applicants should demonstrate their experience developing a community of practice that focused on integrated child health information systems, their understanding of the concept of a community based "child health profile" based on the premise that newborn screening data and other child health related information such as hearing screening results, immunization status, and lead screening results are useful to public health agencies and to pediatricians, and strategies for ensuring optimal followup and management for children identified with heritable conditions through a collaborative approach to knowledge generation and management and principles, core functions, and performance measures for integrated child health information systems.
