CHADIS Benefits for Mental Health Professionals and Patients
CHADIS Co-developers, Dr. Barbara Howard and Dr. Raymond Sturner, are developmental behavioral pediatricians with years of experience as providers and teachers. Drs. Howard and Sturner have helped to design CHADIS based on the unique needs of Child Mental Health Professionals. The CHADIS system will:
Facilitate Intake CHADIS offers a comprehensive choice of pre-visit online data-gathering tools including parent and teen goals, visit priorities, past medical, pregnancy-perinatal, developmental, social and family history.
Facilitate Triage and Diagnostic Documentation CHADIS offers screening for a wide variety of co-morbid disorders and developmental difficulties to triage and diagnostic tools to document DSM-5 criteria and severity such as CANS.
Teen Self-administered Tools Teens complete tools under secure login and results are not visible to parents or others.
Facilitate Symptom Monitoring CHADIS includes a range of tools to monitor symptoms between and before visits of: ADHD; depression; anxiety; tics and movements; and medication side effects.
MemoryBook Care Portal A secure individual website is created for each patient pre-populated by milestones from screening questionnaires to which photos or comments can be added and shared by invitation. Patient-specific text and videos for education or intervention, apps and support groups, and national and your local resource listings are displayed and searchable.
Add Revenue CHADIS evidence-based tools are usually paid by insurers under codes 96160, 96110, 96127; and some under 96111 assessments e.g CARS, CASD.
Communicate with Schools and Primary Care Providers CHADIS allows parents to provide online consent and “invite” teachers or other professionals to provide data such as standard ratings. ADHD ratings from parents and teachers are displayed in a graphical format to share with families. Results can be shared securely with primary care offices.
Support Success and Competitiveness Powering your practice with the best in today’s information technology shows your commitment to patient-centered care.
Complete Electronic Record of Mental Health Care CHADIS allows clinicians to document all aspects of care including options for private notes or can supplement EHR’s and integrate with many.

"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."

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."

“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…”
Grace Stout, Practice Manager

“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.”
Dr. Carl Lindgren
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.
Bill James, MHA
“I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful opportunity…so so helpful for me to better understand my patient, and to have ideas on where to go next. So thank you so much for a really incredible opportunity to be part of CHADIS.”
