Online access to newborn screening results for primary care providers is now available through the Indiana Newborn Screening Tracking & Education Program (INSTEP)! For registration instructions, please send an e-mail to Sarah Shaffstall, Director of Data and Special Projects (SShaffstall@isdh.in.gov).
Other healthcare professionals who are not primary care providers can obtain NBS results by contacting the IU Newborn Screening Laboratory. Send a fax on your office’s letterhead with the patient’s name, date of birth (DOB), patient’s mother’s name, and birthing facility to (317) 491 – 6679. If you have any questions, please call (800) 245 – 9137.
Parents or other individuals requesting NBS results can contact the ISDH Genomics and Newborn Screening Program by calling (888) 815 – 0006.
Whenever a child is discharged home from a birthing facility without receiving a valid initial heelstick or pulse oximetry newborn screen, designated staff at the birthing facility should call Christine Pokrajac, Newborn Screening Follow-up Coordinator, at (317) 233 - 7019 immediately. Please note:
Facilities do not need to call the ISDH Newborn Screening Program if a child is discharged for transfer to another birthing facility and/or transfer to the NICU.
