Reporting Diagnostic Results and Appointments

Audiologists must report all diagnostic hearing evaluations to the Newborn Screening Program. Timely report submission helps ensure timely follow-up so that infants with confirmed hearing loss receive intervention services as soon as possible.

Signed, written consent from parents for submitting results to MDH is not necessary under the mandatory hearing screening law.

Audiologists have two options for reporting hearing screening results. The Newborn Screening Program prefers that audiologists complete the Audiology Report for the Newborn Screening Program with the infant’s screening results and hearing diagnosis, and fax or mail it to the Newborn Screening Program as soon as possible. This form is available to download from the Education Materials and Forms page.

Fax: 651-215-6285
Mail:
Newborn Screening Program
601 Robert Street North
PO Box 64899
Saint Paul, MN 55164

Audiologists may also choose to fax a dictated report of the infant’s diagnostic result and appointment information to the Newborn Screening Program.
