Boston Children's Hospital provides the Z-score package to institutional users through a non-exclusive license.The package contains the formulas and look up tables for implementing the equations for calculating the z-scores. We include a small, stand-alone program that can be used to look up z-score results one at a time and this is included primarily to check the accuracy of the calculations that are implemented in the reading program. We do not have software that can be linked directly to other software packages. Most of the vendors have the ability to add these equations to their reading programs.
Commercial licenses are also available to vendors interested in incorporating the Z-score dataset into products.
Inquiries can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.||
Z-score dataset is avaialble for non-exclusive licensing.
