Florida Newborn Screening Program - Physician Resources
Beginning Spring of 2009, the Florida Newborn Screening Program released a new web application for requesting laboratory results, Florida Newborn Screening Results (FNSR). The FNSR system is designed to provide newborn screening lab reports of babies, and offers an instantaneous 24x7x365 method for receiving Newborn Screening lab reports.
Physicians may request results for older babies by using the Physician Request Form.

Choosing Your Doctor Early Posters - FREE!
The Florida Newborn Screening Program recognizes the need for expectant mothers to choose their baby's doctor early. Far too often, newborn screening results cannot be forwarded to the newborn's physician because one has not yet been selected by the new mom. Some babies come early, so a primary care provider for the baby should be chosen a couple of months before the due date.
We have ample copies available of a reminder poster to hang in physician offices; preferably in areas most visible to clientele, such as the exam rooms or hallways.
To order posters, at no cost, please fax an order form to (850) 922-5385.
