Authority: This program is authorized under section 317(k)(2) and 317(C) of the Public Health Service Act, [42 U.S.C. sections 247b(k)(2) and 247b–4], as amended. Purpose: Currently, all States and many territories have established early hearing detection and intervention programs and 37 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, have passed legislation related to universal newborn hearing screening. The purpose of the program is to (1) develop or enhance a sustainable state-based EHDI tracking and surveillance system capable of accurately ascertaining the disposition of every occurrent birth for each step throughout the EHDI process, and (2) integrate the EHDI system with other State/territorial screening, tracking, and surveillance programs that identify children with special health care needs. Data from the integrated EHDI system will enable State/ territories and the Directors of Speech and Hearing Programs in State Health and Welfare Agencies (DSHPSHWA) to report accurate data for Healthy People 2010 Objective 28–11, and to assess progress on the EHDI National Goals. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with one or more of the following performance goals for the National Center on Birth Defects and Disabilities: Prevent birth defects and developmental disabilities and improve the health and quality of life of Americans with disabilities.
