CHADIS Research and Development

Funding

CHADIS has been developed with the assistance of grant funding from a number of agencies and sponsors.  Drs. Sturner and Howard have acted as principal investigators with the assistance of the CHADIS research staff and many other professional collaborators. 

 

These grants include support from the following granting agencies:  The Abell Foundation, the Wilson Foundation, the Commonwealth Fund, The Erickson Foundation, The Cisco Foundation, The State of Maryland, and the Maternal Child Health Bureau and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  

 

In addition, thirteen SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) awards were given for purposes of CHADIS research and development through Total Child Health, including seven from the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) and two from the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD), two from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), one from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and one from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). 

 

In addition, we have completed subcontracts aimed at developing modules for CHADIS as co-investigators with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Agency (SAMSHA).

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 bhoward@chadis.com  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.
