Facility Report Cards

The Newborn Screening Report Card provides a monthly report on your facility’s NBS submissions; including number of specimens submitted and specific information on specimen quality and demographic issues. Refer to the Guide to the Newborn Screening Report Card for more information on each category.

Access to the report allows the facility to:

  • Identify strengths and opportunities for improvement.
  • Compare your facility’s performance with others in the state.

To access your facility’s report card, you must be a registered user of the Texas Newborn Screening Web Application (Neometrics). If you are not already a registered user, you can sign up here.
