Target: 
45
Target-Setting Method: 
Projection/trend analysis
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
Vital records linked with newborn bloodspot screening data are key to ensuring that all children are screened. Such records also can provide the much needed platform for electronic health records (EHRs). This target will encourage States to prioritize EHRs as the standard for health care systems and public health programs.
Numerator: 

Number of states and DC that verify through linkage with vital records that all newborns are screened shortly after birth for conditions mandated by their State-sponsored screening program

Annual
Changes Between HP2010 and HP2020: 
This objective differs from Healthy People 2010 objective 16-20a in that objective 16-20a remained developmental throughout Healthy People 2010. Since that time a data source has been identified and this objective is measurable.
