Availability of Contact Information Helps Individuals amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Health screenings and check-ups for new babies are still relevant during the coronavirus outbreak. These check-ups help families to make informed decisions about how to protect their infants. Hence, stakeholders in the newborn screening market are increasing awareness about additional precautions that need to be taken such as in cases of follow-up testing after the screening results are received.

Since healthcare is one of the essential industries worldwide, state and territorial newborn screening programs are being carried out even during the COVID-19 situation. Healthcare providers in the newborn screening market are capitalizing on this opportunity to offer comprehensive services in blood spot screening, hearing, and critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) test. Clinicians in the U.S. are increasing the availability of contact information and listing it on official state pages to keep individuals abreast with all updates.

Lack of Data for New Pediatric Health States Increases Costs for Clinicians

The newborn screening market is projected to reach the valuation of US$ 3.3 Bn by 2031. This is evident since the number of conditions assessable by newborn screening methods is increasing, resulting in additional cost for the healthcare system. Moreover, lack of data on long-term consequences of new conditions and scarce follow-up information for screened conditions are hampering the decision making process of healthcare providers. Hence, there is a need to standardize valuation techniques for pediatric health states in the newborn screening market.

There is a need to clarify methodological strengths and flaws in cost effectiveness and cost utility analysis of new pediatric health states.

Point-of-care Sickle Cell Screening Tools Reduce Mortality in Africa

Companies in the newborn screening market are expanding their revenue streams for babies with rare diseases. The European Commission is gaining recognition for shortening the path to rare disease diagnosis by increasing funding and tender opportunities for newborn screening and digital technologies. This is evident since thousands of distinct rare diseases are affecting a significant amount of newborns in Europe.

Moreover, Nigeria is gaining popularity for introducing its $2 10-minute rapid point-of-care tool, which has the potential to transform sickle cell screening for newborns. Thus, healthcare providers are unlocking growth opportunities in Africa to reduce child mortality with the help of innovations in sickle cell screening. The integration of newborn screening into existing primary healthcare immunization programs is being achieved within limited resources in Africa.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The safe follow-up on newborn screening results has become a priority for healthcare providers and individuals during the COVID-19 outbreak. Rapid point-of-care tools are replacing conventional screening methods of collecting blood samples on a filter paper in cases of newborns suffering from sickle cell anemia. Despite many achievements, significant delays between the screening and the availability of the treatment are inhibiting growth of the newborn screening market. Hence, healthcare organizations should collaborate on R&D to make advancements in diagnostic medical technologies to reduce morbidity and mortality rate of newborns. Efforts should be made to increase the connectivity between state public health newborn screening programs and healthcare providers.
