Thursday we celebrated our recent statewide success at reducing the time it takes newborn screening blood spot samples to get to our State Laboratory for testing. Over the last 8 months, Arizona has improved our blood spot turn-around time to among the best in the country.
Folks from dozens of hospitals came to a celebrate our collective success. We had a “thank you” ceremony Thursday for the hospitals that met our statewide goal of getting 95% of blood spot samples to the Lab within 72 hours. Hospitals received a special plaque – so look for it the next time you’re in sitting in a waiting room waiting for someone to have a baby! Everyone who was at the celebration talked about how important it was and that they were excited to be part of the project.
Thank you so much for useful information. Really appreciate it.
