The selected hospital/medical center will also provide direct consultation to the NBS program on the addition of new tests to the screening panel, the implementation of new testing platforms, the interpretation of newborn screening results (at the individual and population level) and assistance with improving the positive predictive value of screening tests. This is a competitive process and the selected proposer will win only the ability to negotiate a contract with the State of Connecticut.
