Newborn Screen Positive Infant ACTion works with teams of physicians and other primary care providers to improve care for infants identified through newborn screening as having a treatable inherited disorder. Participants test strategies, including the use of Act Sheets, developed by the American College of Medical Genetics with funding from HRSA, to help physicians respond to out-of-range screening results on the core panel of 29 treatable disorders, many of which are rare and unfamiliar to many primary care providers.
Goal: Develop a national model of care for the short-term management of infants with inherited disorders identified through newborn screening.
