MDH Announces Newborn Screening Online Test Result Portal

12/14/2017
In an effort to expedite inquiries related to newborn screening results, the Minnesota Department of Health announced that it has created a new secure, web-based portal called "Secure Remote Viewer" or SRV.  

The new portal is intended to allow clinics and physicians to confirm that newborn screening blood cards have been received for testing, as well as final results. The new functionality is intended to improve continuity of care, ease how physicians can check results, and help locate missing specimens.

In 2014, the MMA joined an effort led by the Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (MNAAP) to pass legislation to restore the newborn screening program following an adverse court ruling.
