What’s Up!!        

Join a project addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Social Determinants of Health

CHADIS is recruiting practices for an exciting project aimed at preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in children, including child maltreatment, by addressing social determinants of health and parent ACEs.
The project is a multi-year NIH-funded research intervention effort that includes use of a family stress questionnaire (Safe Environment for Every Kid), an advanced decision support tool, and new referral-facilitation software in CHADIS. 
You will earn 25 Part 4 MOC credits at no charge, get free tablets for your waiting room, and receive other practice level benefits (e.g. improving documentation for the medical home, Community Health Needs Assessments, your QI efforts, and negotiated billing rates) and learn a very practical and efficient way to motivate parents.
Please contact  We will give you more information about the project and ask a few follow-up questions to determine your eligibility.

CHADIS receives NICHD award aimed at reduction of child maltreatment and addressing family stress.  A unique family stress "patient-specific template" has been created for this purposes and is being further refined through clinical simulations with primary care pediatricians and feedback from a diverse group of parents.  This module will be studied further in a large-scale cluster randomized trial.  Interested practices should contact Dr. Barbara Howard at  Click to view Family Stress Grant Summary.

CHADIS American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Portfolio Sponsor status renewed for the Maintenance of Certification (MOC-4) program.   CHADIS is unique in matching patient-generated data with prompted clinician decision making so chart reviews are not needed.  Portfolio Sponsors are programs recognized as having demonstrated success in creating approved quality improvement processes for formal re-certification of specialty status and are able to create their own programs on behalf of the ABP.  CHADIS offers MOC-4 for the following areas: Autism Screening; Developmental Screening; Asthma; ADHD; and Family Stress. 

Congratulations Drs. Raymond Sturner and Barbara Howard, et al.

"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."

“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.”

Dr. Carl Lindgren
Healthy Futures Pediatrics

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.

“I just wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful opportunity…so so helpful for me to better understand my patient, and to have ideas on where to go next. So thank you so much for a really incredible opportunity to be part of CHADIS.”
