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.

Supporter Testimonials

"CHADIS has been a great timesaver and has improved the quality of the care that I deliver in the office. I used to have a large stack of paper on my desk, of questionnaires and surveys, that needed to be scored and evaluated. With CHADIS that paper has all disappeared because the parents complete those surveys and the scoring is done automatically and is imported into Office Practicum. That benefit in and of itself is worth the investment."

"Getting CHADIS is definitely worthwhile. If you were to take each of those questionnaires and buy them individually, at an online pre-visit basis, the cost is actually cheaper through CHADIS."

Dr. Selam Bullock
Kids' First Pediatric, Raleigh, NC

"My short time experience with CHADIS integrated has been great!  It’s a product that actually does what it says it will do!  I am really liking this product!  The discrete data elements and the ease of use have made the transition rather painless."

Becky Senesac, CPC, EFPM
Primary Care Health Partners, Williston, VT

“We have been using CHADIS for 5 years.  The recent interface between Allscripts Pro and CHADIS has had a positive impact on our clinic, for the questionnaires that are supported.  Prior to the interface, almost 100% of our questionnaires were completed in the office.  Now we are seeing an increasing percentage of questionnaires being completed at home. We find it is fairly seamless now. [This is a] significant savings of work and time…”

“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.”
