Newborn hearing screening provider resources

Looking for the Newborn Hearing Database? Look No Further!

Please apply for access to the Health Information Data System's Newborn Hearing Application using the instructions found here.

Announcement: Please note that imports for infants born in 2024 who missed or did not pass their hearing screen have been delayed. Vital Records launched the new birth registry system, COVES, on January 1, 2024, and we will now receive our imports from that new system.  NBH staff are working to connect to the new dataset, but there will be a delay in seeing 2024 birth data in the NBH database.

The Newborn Hearing Program staff thanks you for your patience as we work through this transition in data processing.
We will post an announcement and email database users once we have imported new 2024 cases.

If you're a health care provider performing newborn hearing screening, you can find a variety of helpful forms and resources below:
