Automate pre-visit screenings with CHADIS – The patient engagement and health questionnaire solution
Healthcare organizations are facing unprecedented numbers of new policies and regulations intended to save money and improve care delivery, but often, the result is staff and clinician burnout. In an ideal world, technology would save practice time and do some of the work to streamline overall efficiencies.
The Allscripts Developer Program is proud to partner with CHADIS, a solution that offers user-friendly access to patient-generated data—all through an automated electronic questionnaire and patient engagement platform. With CHADIS embedded in the standard workflow, a practice can expect to gather more accurate and frequent patient data, while saving staff time: two important areas of focus for many physician practices today.
Whether an in-office or virtual visit, CHADIS saves valuable time by auto-assigning pre-visit questionnaires as well as key reminders for completion. The front-office staff no longer must send, score or scan questionnaires: CHADIS does it automatically. The scoring is more accurate and provides real-time data for the clinician, so they can be prepared for their patients prior to the visit. This enables clinicians to concentrate more time on areas of concern without spending critical and expensive visit time assessing the data during the visit. The automation CHADIS provides is also more efficient when compared to manual assessments that clinicians may be using today.
While patient-generated data is important for the visit, it is also very important between visits. Clinicians can access important information from patients on a continual basis, including depression screenings, general medication adherence and chronic conditions, such as asthma. Monitoring data between visits can improve health outcomes and have the potential to facilitate more “connected health” between patients and their care teams.
CHADIS features automated between-visit monitoring through pre-set triggered reminders for patients to complete questionnaires. Negative scores are flagged to attract the attention of the clinicians or staff members, and practices will see when the patient is improving or when additional care is needed. In an ideal world, the time spent caring for patients remains tightly focused on the patient. With CHADIS, time and income are boosted as the patient experience is improved.
