Who We Are

Leonard Machado
Founder / CEO

A Clinical Director with experience in Neonatology. Since the inception of the California Newborn Hearing Screening Program (CA NHSP), IHSS has been dedicated to making the programs easier to manage for our hospitals.

Medical Director

Our Medical Director is a CCS-paneled Audiologist with nearly thirty years experience in Audiology. She regularly reviews policies and procedures and develops nursing and physician staff education modules that satisfy the education requirements for the CA NHSP.

Data Management

Our team is lead by a former data coordinator for the CA NHSP. She brought her experience to our company in 2007 and has been instrumental in developing our comprehensive approach to the new CA Data Management Service (DMS). This DMS has led many hospitals to inquire about our services due to the increased labor costs associated with the new data entry requirements. We are able to use our dedicated Data Management staff to remove the burden and worry of this new program.


IHSS’ NCHAM certified technicians perform hearing screens in a professional manner that will provide your patients with the best experience in hearing screening.


The IHSS Communications Director will meet with you quarterly to discuss your Newborn Hearing Screening Program, which will include statistics and compliance.

Local Management

Our site managers are drawn from your local community. Having a local manager provides the best possible service to your facility and your patients.
