Evidence-based Shared Decisions

Developmental, Behavioral & Health Screening Tools for Clinicians

CHADIS is a unique screening, decision support and patient engagement system designed to streamline and optimize healthcare by providing Clinicians with evidence-based data that improves diagnosis and management of health, emotional, developmental and behavioral concerns. CHADIS is the only IT company that has been designated as a “portfolio sponsor” by the American Board of Pediatrics for their Maintenance of Certification program.

Key Features and Benefits

Provides Enhanced Patient Care

Improves Office Workflow

  • Pre-visit data collection allows the Clinician to focus on patient concerns and visit agenda.
  • Online screening saves office staff time – no more paper and manual scoring and scanning of the ASQ-3™, M-CHAT-R™, Vanderbilt Assessment Scales, and others.

Increases Practice Income and Enhances Reputation

  • Powering your practice with the best in today’s information technology shows your commitment to evidence-based patient-centered care.
  • Increase practice income with health, developmental and emotional screening tools eligible for 96110, 96127 and 96160 billing codes to insurance or Medicaid.
  • CHADIS uses patient-generated documentation to verify visit complexity for higher-level codes.
  • Provision of an individualized MemoryBook Care Portal for each child gives parents bragging rights with other parents which advertise your practice

Provides Clinical Training/”Moment of Care” Decision Support with CME and MOC credits

  • CHADIS provides unique “moment of care” decision support. CHADIS has the only method for completing the standard follow-up interview now “required” by the M-CHAT-R that has been shown to be feasible and reliable for use during a routine check-up visit. The patient specific questions needed for the doctor to ask are presented as a “teleprompter” at the time of the visit and rescored efficiently taking much less time than making a referral for a false positive autism screen.
  • “Patient Specific Templates" or "PST’s” are another unique CHADIS feature now available. Decision support is based on the pattern of symptoms for each patient, not just the overall condition. The Family Stress PST provides decision support for a variety of the “social determinants of health” providing guidance and training in completion of an adaptation of a Motivational Interview with family-specific teleprompter help, and individualized messaging to the parent including provision of local referral information.

Provides Maintenance of Certification Assistance

Common topics are also presented by the faculty. CME credits are available.

Supporter Testimonials

“Dr. Lindgren’s patients access a cool web tool, called CHADIS, that allows them to help him screen for all kinds of conditions including developmental delays, behavioral issues, or even learning problems.  You see, this doc is big into prevention. But it’s hard to get the info he needs in a regular office visit since parents often have their hands full with a sick child.  Now his patients can be way ahead of the game and parents love it.”

Healthy Futures Pediatrics

CHADIS has been a really great resource for my practice. With CHADIS, I have access to a comprehensive list of screening and assessment tools. I can use the tools to accomplish multiple goals, including early screening and intervention. As a physician, I know that early intervention DOES WORK!

Treehouse Pediatrics has used Chadis as a part of its day to day operations for the past couple of years. We have found it to be a tremendous asset in our operational efficiencies.  Parents appreciate the convenience of completing their child’s developmental, ADHD, and asthma questionnaires at home, and it has proven to help make all of our visits requiring questionnaires run more smoothly.  Furthermore, we appreciate the interpretation and documentation that Chadis provides for these questionnaires. We feel that Chadis has become an integral part of our operational efficiencies.  We do not know what we would do without it.
