The purpose of NBS V.O.I.C.E. is to provide the newborn screening community with an open group of vendors offering a complete solution and the assurance that V.O.I.C.E. members are committed to work closely together to support the client in whatever solution(s) the client chooses. A joint effort currently comprised of Astoria-Pacific, Integrated Software Solutions, and Microelectronic Systems, V.O.I.C.E. is open to all vendors who commit to interoperability with other members and provides Newborn Screening Programs with the ability to select different vendors to achieve a complete solution.
NBS programmes will have the assurance that they can select specific V.O.I.C.E member vendors purchases knowing that these vendors are committed to working together to provide a complete solution including integration of systems and interoperability and co-operation between vendors to achieve the clients objectives. This places the client in control and allows them to select the vendors, and products that the client recognises as providing the best solution for their individual requirements
