Title V and Newborn Screening Issue Brief: State Performance Measures and Long-Term Follow-Up
This new AMCHP issue brief highlights Title V state performance measures related to newborn screening and the role of Title V programs in supporting newborn screening programs and long-term follow-up activities for those infants identified with a condition. This issue brief can serve as a resource to Title V programs as they develop and implement strategies to build or improve newborn screening systems and as they support coordinated systems of care for CYSHCN. It also provides examples of how Title V programs can partner with others engaged in efforts to deliver and improve newborn screening and services for children and families.
Maternal and Child Environmental Health Collaborative Improvement
and Innovation Network
On July 23-24, AMCHP hosted the first learning session
for the Maternal & Child Environmental Health Collaborative Improvement
and Innovation Network (MCEH CoIIN). The summit brought
together nine state teams, national and federal experts, partner
organizations, key stakeholders, and other multisector leaders to exchange
ideas, resources, strategies, and expertise to address lead exposure and
increase access to systems of care for MCH populations. With our partners at
the National Institute for Children's Health Quality, the Association of State
and Territorial Health Officials, Green & Healthy Homes
Initiative, National Academy for State Health Policy, and National
Environmental Health Association, AMCHP staff — Kate Taft, Stacy
Collins, Paige Bussanich, Shanel Tage, Michelle Jarvis, and Caroline Stampfel —
facilitated the meeting to review and continuously develop key resources for
state teams on promising practices, policies, strategies, and measures, such as
change packages and driver diagrams. Information about the MCEH CoIIN can
be found on this link.
