Results from the newborn screening blood test are sent to the hospital or midwifery practice that did the test, by mail and/or electronically through the Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS).
A baby's parent, guardian or health care provider can also request that results be sent to a baby's health care provider. We strive to fulfill all requests for results within 48 hours.
Please note that results for Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD) screening are available immediately since the testing is done at the bedside. Results of CCHD screening can be requested from the hospital, birthing centre, or midwifery practice where the test was performed.
