Congratulations Dr. Sturner!

Our own Dr. Raymond Sturner was honored by having been chosen to present an abstract at the AAP NCE in October and in December 2015 it will be published  as an online e-supplement to Pediatrics.  

"Recognizing that abstract presentation is a yardstick of success, the Academy is pleased to further support recognition and documentation of this achievement....." Sue Tellez, AAP.


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."

Dr. Robert Stephens
Cornerstone Pediatrics, Sequin, Tx

"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…”

Grace Stout, Practice Manager
The Children's Clinic, Anchorage, AK

“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.”
