Developmental, Behavioral and Health Screening Tools Families & Teens
CHADIS Helps Families:
Tell the provider about any goals for the visit.
Share problems or concerns and ask questions.
Track a child's development.
Identify health and safety risks
Connect providers, families, and teachers so that everyone can provide information and updates about how a child is doing.
CHADIS delivers questionnaires to parents and teens and collects the answers from those questionnaires, making them available to health care providers. CHADIS was founded by experienced pediatricians with the goal of providing better care and support to kids and families.
Benefits of CHADIS for Families
Early diagnosis and treatment of health, developmental and behavioral issues in children and adolescents is important to having the best outcomes for families. Getting the right diagnosis and management plan mostly depends on getting accurate information from patients and parents. CHADIS questionnaires put families and clinicians in a better position to share in the decision-making. The goal is Evidence-based Shared Decisions.
...And For Teens
Teenagers should provide information to their doctor independently of their parents and also have private time with their doctor.
CHADIS provides a confidential way for Teens to communicate directly with their provider.
Teens do not see Parent answers, and Parents do not see Teen answers.
CHADIS MemoryBook Care Portal Benefits after health visits includes individualized feedback in a MemoryBook Care Portal, available in most offices in the secure area where questionnaires are taken, which was created for your child (see video overview) and designed to be a way for clinicians to join with parents and teens to:
capture special memories and achievements in a keepsake format with tailored educational suggestions
alert them to health challenges
provide useful information tailored just for them by questionnaire results and/or clinician selection
give access to a file of resources free of advertising
"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.”
