Healthy Start Risk Screening Reports
What is the goal of Risk Screening?
Healthy Start Risk Screening is the collection of information on the provided prenatal & infant (postnatal) screening forms. The Risk Screen is scored to assess risk and identify those infants most at risk for adverse health outcomes. Screening is the first step to identify Healthy Start service recipients. It is our goal to ensure that all newborns and pregnant women are screened for risk factors. The majority of pregnant women and infants will not be eligible for Healthy Start services as they will not have the risk factors required. However, the data collected in the Risk Screen enables the State of Florida to analyze the factors that have the greatest impact on birth outcomes and the factors that most affect residents of our County.
The Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade staff monitors the trends for the both of the Healthy Start Risk Screening Forms. The following reports show the trends found from 1995 – 2014:
