Track-Kit for Newborn Screening Programs

Track-Kit for Newborn Screening Programs

Track thousands of specimens statewide to prevent delays

For State Newborn Screening Programs that must screen every new baby’s bloodspot specimen for devastating but preventable conditions within a critical time window, Track-Kit is a secure, cloud-based turnkey system that tracks every specimen from shipping at the hospital to receipt at the lab to help reduce the impact of late or missing deliveries for better patient outcomes.

Without Track-Kit, the lab screens whatever it receives, unaware if specimens are missing.

Unlike courier software that only informs the shipper (medical facility or midwife) of the package location, Track-Kit tracks the location and status of every specimen, informing the hospital and lab staff if any specimens are delayed so they can take action sooner to locate or recollect them, and informing the lab of incoming volumes so they can prepare resources.

  • Tracks specimens from collection to storage
  • Helps reduce delays by alerting hospital and state lab staff when specimen delivery is late
  • Secure, web-based system that is easily accessible to all users statewide
  • Secure portal for each user – birthing facility/midwives, state laboratory, state NBS program (policy center), card distributor
  • Integrates with most courier systems
    • Provides real-time status updates so you know where all the packages AND specimens are located
    • Makes shipping process easier
    • Forces the best shipping option by location for the NBS program, such as forcing Saturday delivery to support weekend screening
  • Allows the state lab to make a recollection request to the hospital electronically to expedite screening
  • Helps the state and hospitals to manage dried blood spot card inventory to never run out of kits
