MACRA and CMS aim at making Medicare better by helping you focus on care quality and making patients healthier.

MACRA and CMS have identified key considerations for implementing the Measure Development Plan (MDP), including and not limited to: 

- The use of certified EHR technologies which:

  • reduces data collection and reporting burdens
  • support more timely performance feedback to clinicians than is possible through traditional claims or paper submission mechanisms

- Partnering with patients, caregivers, and communities 

- Streamlining data acquisition for measure testing

- Developing patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs)

- Incorporating patient preferences and shared decision-making
 
- Assessing team-based care (e.g., timely exchange of clinical information)

- Promoting shared accountability across settings and clinicians

How does CHADIS help? 

Quality Monitoring and Collaboration
 
CHADIS can produce quality monitoring reports and registries for internal use by practices and providers. All reports are securely delivered on a scheduled basis, with CHADIS account management offering suggestions to support quality improvement. Reports can be used to support standards for compliance with PCMH and other programs. CHADIS also provides overall activity reports to help support all aspects of implementation and ensure that practices derive maximum value from using CHADIS. 


Through pre-visit online data collection, "Moment of Care" decision support, and post-visit patient engagement and education, CHADIS:

  • reduces data collection and reporting burdens
  • supports more timely performance feedback to clinicians than is possible through traditional claims or paper submission mechanisms
  • streamlines data acquisition for measure testing
  • partners with patients, caregivers, and communities
  • incorporates patient preferences and shared decision-making
  • promotes shared accountability across settings and clinicians

  Prior to the visit, patients complete on-line questionnaires that are
  automatically assigned appropriately for type of the planned visit and
  the patients’ age.

PRE-VISIT ONLINE QUESTIONNIARES

 

  These online tools collect information on the patient’s priorities and
  strengths as well as issues and symptoms.


  Results include validated screens, outcome measures and
  diagnostic assessments as well as simple data collection.

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."

"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…”

“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.”
