Connecticut Newborn Diagnosis & Treatment Network

The Connecticut Newborn Diagnosis and Treatment Network is a statewide network that responds to all reports of infants who have a newborn screen that is flagged as out of range.

Connecticut Newborn Diagnosis and Treatment Network Services

Funded through the Connecticut Department of Public Health, the Network works in coordination with the infant’s primary care provider or hospital-based medical provider to perform follow-up testing and diagnosis. If an infant tests positive for a disorder, the Network will coordinate treatment and long-term follow-up care for the condition in coordination with the infant’s medical providers.

Comprehensive Screening & Follow-up Care

The Network is staffed by a registered nurse, board certified genetic counselor, registered dietitian, data manager, and board certified physicians. If treatment is needed, the family will be referred to a specialist in genetics, endocrinology, hematology or immunology. For those children who are diagnosed, the Network will continue to be a part of the child’s health care team and will track long-term health and developmental outcomes.
