3 Famous EHDI s
4 KY EHDI The term EHDI reflects the full continuum from screening (UNHS) to diagnostic evaluations and linkage to early intervention services. The full implementation of EHDI programs was delayed until the mid to late 90 s due to a multitude of factors: Policy statements and recommendations from JCIH relied on data indicating that most babies would be identified through high-risk screening; in reality only 50% of babies with hearing loss have identifiable risk indicators Shorter hospital stays for newborns/mothers made it difficult to implement high risk screenings in well baby nurseries Convincing families/pcp s of the need for full hearing evaluations of babies with risk factors proved to be difficult Concern that identifying babies with hearing loss early might disrupt the natural bonding process between parents and infants Primary obstacle was the lack of a valid, cost effective and rapid objective technique for newborn hearing screening prior to discharge ASHA s Audiology Information Series
5 KY-EHDI Historical Perspectives January 2001: Kentucky implemented Universal Newborn Hearing Screening (UNHS) statewide 52% screened in 2000 (Legislation signed July 1, 2000-implemented Jan 1, 2001) 98% screened in % screened in 2015 Paradise and Bess (1994): Predicted inability to provide quality follow-up from UNHS due to high numbers Madell (2013): Many audiologists see both adults and children. Many audiologists who work primarily with adults work well with older children. But there is a difference between adult and pediatric audiology. Pediatric audiology is more than fitting hearing aids. A good pediatric audiologist will monitor all aspects of a child s development, will assist parents in selecting and managing therapy, will refer to other specialists as needed, will work with schools to get appropriate accommodations and will teach school staff what they need to know to assist a child with hearing loss in succeeding in school.

9 JCIH Our Roadmap Review of JCIH principles regarding EHDI: EHDI system should be FAMILY CENTERED Immediate access to high quality technology when HL identified Monitoring of all children for HL in the medical home High quality, focused early intervention Information systems (i.e. EHR) should work together so outcomes can be measured
10 JCIH: Audiology Specifics Audiology test battery must: Include physiological/objective measures Be developmentally appropriate Utilize measures that evaluate integrity of auditory system Be able to estimate degree, configuration, and type of hearing loss Cross check principle (Jerger 1976): Results of a single test are crosschecked by an independent test measure.
11 JCIH 2007 Diagnostic Audiology Guidelines Birth-6 months Comprehensive child and family history Frequency-specific electrophysiological testing Otoacoustic emissions Middle ear function test using 1000 Hz probe tone Behavioral observation audiometry
12 Next Steps After Confirmation of Hearing Loss- The Audiologist as Case Manager Refer to Part C (First Steps) within 48 hours of diagnosis Otologic evaluation Other medical workups Eye health and vision examination Amplification within one month of diagnosis Coordination of services
13 KY-EHDI Evidence Based Practice Guidelines KY-EHDI Advisory Board subcommittee reviewed evidence-based practice (EBP) documents from the following organizations: AAA AG Bell ASHA JCIH The result?
15 EHDI Process Birthing hospital reports the newborn hearing screening results on every infant that is discharged from their hospital via KY-CHILD The data is transferred from the KY-CHILD application to the CCSHCN s database (CUP) If a child refers/passes with risk indicators a letter is sent to the family within 48 hours of the data receipt New- physician letters for refers- more on this in a minute!
16 Applying the KY-EHDI EBP Document: Case Study #1 Child referred on NBHS in both ears; diagnosed with Waardenburg Syndrome Tested at 1 month, 2 months and 3 months of age Diagnosis of hearing loss made at 3 months of age Referred for hearing aids

34 Future Directions and Improvements for KY-EHDI: Loss to Follow-Up and Loss to Documentation Physicians in KY now receive letters when one of their patients refers on NBHS, similar to how results of other abnormal newborn screens are handled Also sending letters to PCP when child is identified with PCHL EHDI program continues to follow up with audiology providers via phone/ /fax to make sure documentation is entered when a child is seen Education programs for PCP and other medical providers such as ENT, infectious disease, neurology are being discussed.
35 Future Directions and Improvements for KY-EHDI: Improving Adherence to Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Form presented today has been used to develop a compliance checklist for audiologists who provide diagnostic services. All Level 2 centers annual, random chart review to determine adherence to EBP standards If EBP standards are not met on annual review, second stage chart review If additional issues are found on second review, facility will be required to develop an action plan for remediation, and submit to re-review in 3 months Facilities who do not practice EBP will no longer be on the EHDI referral list for KY per state regulations Facilities who do not elect to participate in the compliance review will no longer be on the EHDI referral list Technical assistance is available from the EHDI program at any time!
36 Compliance Checklist for KY- EHDI Level Two Centers Comprehensive Case History Pregnancy and birth history Audiology Standard of Care Compliance Checklist Meets Standard Does Not Meet Standard N/A Comments This form will be used to review cases submitted from each center in a systematic and consistent manner N/A will require good documentation on the part of the provider, i.e. could not test due to child s waking state Please note that First Steps referrals are to be made within 48 hours of diagnosis, per state regs Calling the pediatrician Please share your feedback! Comprehensive child health history Family health history Any family history of PCHL Otoscopy 1000 Hz tympanometry Otoacoustic Emissions Acoustic Reflexes Diagnostic ABR Suprathreshold click with rare/con Threshold for minimum of two frequencies (high/low) Bone conduction Results Entered in KY-CHILD? If PCHL: Consults for ENT, genetics, eye health/vision EI referral within 48 hours of Dx Contact PCP/pediatrician If Medical Referral: Refer back to PCP Refer to ENT if required Is follow-up plan documented with next appointment scheduled? If Inconclusive or Incomplete: Is follow-up plan documented with next appointment scheduled?
37 Future Directions and Improvements for KY-EHDI: Family Resources and Support Family Support Subcommittee of KY-EHDI Advisory Council is working on updating printed parent resource information that is available Collaborations through KY-EHDI Advisory Council with First Steps, KCDHH, DBHID, KY Chapter Hands and Voices, AGBell KY, SERCD (member representation) Collaboration between Hands and Voices and CCSHCN Family 2 Family program to provide another mechanism for support services
38 Future Directions and Improvements for KY-EHDI: Physician and Provider Education Discussion of risk factors for PCHL and monitoring schedule; making medical home providers more aware of risk factors collaboration with U of L Department of Public Health to analyze KY specific data Discussion of how to implement screening for congenital CMV infection statewide Pediatric audiology providers: what educational needs do you require to best support children who are referred from EHDI and how would you like to receive that information?
39 Audiologist Responsibilities to EHDI: EHDI Recap E: EHDI reporting to state program and medical home H: Have properly calibrated, functioning equipment and know how to use it D: Diagnostic evaluations are performed in a manner consistent with EBP I: Informed and involved with IFSP, advocacy, and empowerment for patients and families
40 Audiologist Responsibilities to EHDI: Permanent Childhood Hearing Loss (PCHL) P: Prepare information to share with families in various formats and native language C: Communicate and collaborate with family, medical home, EHDI, First Steps, and other providers H: Habilitation initial oversight to ensure that families get to next step in process. L: Listen attentively, answer questions, and inform of next steps. Link the families to support systems and refer as warranted to additional resources.
