    The mandate of Universal Newborn Hearing Screening in all states has dramatically increased the number of infants tested for hearing loss prior to hospital discharge. However, challenges still remain regarding final refer rates and appropriate diagnostic follow-up within the prescribed Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) 1-3-6 timeframe recommendations. In order to improve timeliness of hearing loss diagnoses, final refer rates and babies loss to follow up (LTF) must be reduced. PURPOSE The purpose of this review is to evaluate the impact of a dedicated newborn hearing screening program on final refer rate and overall rate of loss to follow-up. We hypothesize that implementation of this dedicated program will reduce the overall rate of referral, as well as the number of babies that are loss to follow-up.
