The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) EHDI program is submitting this proposal in response to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention entitled Improved Timely Documentation, Reporting, and Analysis of Diagnostic and Intervention Data (CDC) RFA-DD20-2006. During the four-year project period, Georgia?s EHDI program will target improvement in loss to follow-up/loss to documentation (LTF/D) for all infants not passing their initial hearing screening. Georgia EHDI is proposing to fully meet all ?SHALL? requirements of Goals 2-8 of the CDC EHDI-IS Functional Standards as an extended data set contributor through CDC-RFA-DD20-2006 by optimizing EHDI tracking, surveillance, reporting, and analysis. This will be accomplished through improved collaboration with audiologists serving infants and young children, early intervention (EI) programs, and other EHDI stakeholders to ensure that infants who are Deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) and their families receive timely diagnostic and EI services and that the received services are documented in the State Electronic Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (SendSS). Funding is proposed to maintain the position of the EHDI epidemiologist, to continue to contract with our health infomatics specialist/database programmer, and to develop a contract with the Georgia Mobile Audiology (GMA) program to provide additional professional training and support throughout underserved areas of the state.
