Neonatal Follow-up Program

THE NEONATAL FOLLOW-UP PROGRAM

Neonatal Follow-up is a statewide program whose threefold mission is to:

  • Offer 2½ year interdisciplinary follow-up services to an at-risk graduate from a referring newborn intensive care unit (NICU)
  • Complement the care provided by the child’s medical home
  • Provide feedback to the referring NICU

The program offers periodic screening by a multidisciplinary team. When indicated, the program assists with or refers to appropriate intervention and financial services. The program provides psychosocial support as needed.

The Neonatal Follow-up Program services are tailored to the needs of each child. A summary of each evaluation is sent to the child’s medical home and to the referring newborn intensive care unit. With parent approval, the summary is also sent to other providers involved in the child’s care.

The Neonatal Follow-up Program does not serve as a primary health care provider, and strongly supports ongoing participation with the child’s primary care provider, the medical home and community services.
