What is CHADIS? CHADIS is an online tool that allows parents and patients to complete questionnaires and other documentation electronically before their visit. This online system allows our pediatricians to have immediate access to important medical documents and information that can help them prepare for your visit and evaluate your child. The CHADIS system administers these forms and questionnaires and analyzes them, allowing our pediatricians to focus on diagnosis and patient care.
What benefits can early diagnostic tools provide? CHADIS and other online screening tools provide many benefits to patients, their families and pediatricians. The ability to have information before a pediatric visit enhances the productivity of the visit. Having information readily available and organized also helps our pediatricians to be more effective when treating patients. Below are 6 of the best benefits early diagnosis/screening tools can provide.
Catching Early Warning Signs- The consistent monitoring of the development of your child is imperative to catching signs of developmental conditions early.
Management of Medical Documents-
Streamlines Workflow- Access to documents beforehand allows our practice staff to streamline workflow and save you time and stress.
High Identification Rates- Screening has been proven to improve identification rates in children with developmental disabilities.
Improves Doctor/Patient Communication- The platform of online information allows you and your child to more easily communicate issues and conditions about their health.
Focuses Diagnosis and Treatment- Our pediatricians are better prepared for visits. They can use information already gathered on CHADIS to focus diagnostic efforts and treatment plans. The benefits of early diagnosis/screening tools provide to pediatricians and patients can be invaluable. Most medical conditions’ severity is significantly increased the longer it goes undiagnosed. Some conditions can even be prevented with earlier diagnosis. Kids First Raleigh believes that CHADIS is an instrumental tool in providing a quality level of pediatric service.
