Beneficiary Engagement:

Evidence-based Techniques to Promote Self-management into Usual Care:  CHADIS offers a unique moment of care decision support called "Patient Specific Templates."

Engagement of Patients, Family and Caregivers in Developing a Plan of Care:  Through the use of the Asthma Patient Specific Template, clinicians gather on-line, pre-visit asthma information from the patient, receive tailored clinical ‘Next Steps’ to easily follow during the visit, receive "problem solving counseling" suggestions to address adherence, efficiently create an individualized Asthma Treatment (Asthma Action) Plan with the patient/family, receive tailored resources for the patient/family, and have access to clinician education all while earning Part 4 MOC credits. All of the data, information, and plans are then documented within your EHR.  Activity ID:  IA_BE_15


Engage Patients and Families to Guide Improvement in the System of Care: CHADIS automatically generates post-visit messages tailored to the patient’s goals and challenges, printable handouts, and suggests local resources, all accessible to the parent online in the CHADIS MemoryBook Care Portal.  Activity ID:  IA_BE_14


Improved Practices that Engage Patients Pre-visit: CHADIS enables families to list their concerns and goals before the visit improving patient-centered care. Clinicians also have access to over 400 screening, diagnostic and data collection tools and questionnaires. Prior to the visit, patients complete online questionnaires that are automatically assigned appropriately for the type of planned visit.  Activity ID:  IA_BE_22
