“Is CHADIS integrated with any EHRs?”  While CHADIS can be used as a stand alone using copy-paste or pdf upload and does not require integration with an EHR, CHADIS is currently integrated with Allscripts – Touchworks EHR and Professional EHR , eClinicalWorks (beta), athenahealth EHR (pilot) and Office Practicum.

“Which billing codes can I use to bill for screens?”                                                                                                                      There are over 100 billable screens: Developmental Screening – 96110; Mental Health Screening – 96127 and Health Risk 99420, etc.; More Complex billing - 99214 and 99215, is justified using Review of Systems and Family & Social Histories.

“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.”

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.
