Information for Parents:
Dear Patriot Pediatrics Family,We are beginning a new initiative here at Patriot Pediatrics that helps provide your children with the best care available. As you may be aware, there is increased recognition within the pediatric community that early diagnosis and treatment of health, developmental and behavioral issues in children and adolescents allows for more successful management. Many organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, now recommend using standardized screening tools to assist with this early identification.
Starting immediately, we are using an Internet-based system called CHADIS through which you complete questionnaires before each visit in order to track your child’s development. To use CHADIS, please register online now at www.CHADIS.com and follow all prompts during this Initial Registration so that you can begin using CHADIS for your next office visit. On the home page, click “New Users Register Here” and as a new user, you will be asked to enter the “Invitation Code” that links to our office. This is our office telephone number: 7816742900
Once you enter the site, you will be asked to create a username and password for yourself. Your email address is the best username, if you have one. Write your new username and password below and please keep this letter:
If you have an appointment within the next two weeks, please go to CHADIS before the appointment. Your doctor has assigned questionnaires for that visit.
Otherwise, before each visit, please log on to CHADIS and complete the prescribed questionnaires. You will receive reminders from CHADIS through email or over the phone about filling them out. These developmental questionnaires are recommended nationally by the American Academy of Pediatrics and we are glad to be a leader in providing them to you. Please note that CHADIS is a secure website and that your information will never be made available to outside organizations.
As a partner in your child’s healthcare, your input is essential in helping us to provide your child with the best care possible. As always, we are dedicated to this goal and we feel CHADIS is great new tool for achieving it.
Thank you and see you soon,
