To paraphrase Stein (1995), designing, implementing, and maintaining a cost-effective process for UIHD may be the most challenging responsibility we face as audiologists because those activities affect 4 million babies and their families each year. We are confident that we will be successful as audiology implements quality measures, when information management programs are designed to meet our needs, when partnerships are embraced, and when our leadership and management skills are refined. Each baby that passes through our programs will be screened; infants with hearing impairment will be detected and connected to service. The motto of the Sounds of Texas Project is “Detect and connect—one baby at a time.”
