Newborn Screening ELO\ELR Project

Contact the Newborn Screening Program

Develop and maintain a bi-directional Electronic Laboratory Ordering (ELO) and Electronic Laboratory Result (ELR) interface between Florida’s hospital Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and the Florida Department of Health’s Bureau of Laboratories for Newborn Screening (NBS) tests. Currently, ordering and reporting is a manual process. The project would focus on improving the efficiency and timeliness of Newborn Screening test result reporting, not only for the BOL, but also for all Florida hospitals.
