As one of the leading providers of newborn hearing screens, Pediatrix ensures high-quality service and compassionate care for you and your baby.
One to three of every 1,000 newborns in the United States face some form of hearing deficiency. Early identification provides a unique opportunity for infants to receive early intervention, which can dramatically increase their quality of life.
Our on-site hearing screener will educate parents about the hearing screening process and the importance of hearing health.
At select facilities, a dedicated Pediatrix care coordinator will facilitate follow-up care coordination between primary care provider(s) and diagnostic audiology facilities.
We maintain newborn hearing screening protocols, policies and procedures, and observe Joint Commission and hospital requirements. We also follow national guidelines and standards, and comply with state reporting requirements, guidelines and certifications.
All Pediatrix newborn hearing screenings are performed with ABR screening technology, the only type that can identify auditory neuropathy.
Our data-management system helps us maintain and monitor program quality benchmarks, such as refer rates (babies requiring a referral to a hearing specialist), false positives, identification of babies who have hearing loss and capture rates (total number of newborns screened).
