CHADIS is a web-based screening, diagnostic and management system that administers and analyzes pre-visit, online questionnaires completed by parents, teens or teachers and provides Clinicians with instant access to valuable clinical data and resources. Through its process, CHADIS improves the diagnosis and management of health, emotional and behavioral issues, helping Clinicians address parents’ concerns about their child’s development while streamlining other routines of Pediatric care.
There is increased recognition within the Pediatric community that early diagnosis and treatment of health, developmental and behavioral issues in children and adolescents is extremely beneficial in successfully dealing with them. Many organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, now recommend using pre-visit screening tools to assist with early identification.
CHADIS was designed with both the practice and families in mind by two highly-respected, experienced Pediatricians working with a team of technical, research and support specialists. The program was devised to be easy to utilize in day-to-day operations of a practice while achieving the ultimate goal of helping Clinicians provide better care and support to patients and families.
