Transit Time Project


Congratulations to the Arizona Hospitals and their achievement of the transit time goal.

Site Visits

The Newborn Screening Program provides Arizona birth hospitals the opportunity to request a site visit to review and discuss transit time protocols. Once the taskforce receives the request, the hospital will be contacted to arrange a site visit.

Site visit topics may include:

  • Bloodspot Specimen Collection-Technique and Timing
  • Bloodspot Specimen Handling
  • Bloodspot Specimen Transport and Shipping
  • Maximizing the Availability of Courier Services
  • Newborn Screening Website-Transit Time Project
  • Interpreting Monthly Performance Reports
