An initiative of the Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP) is to improve the attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) pediatric diagnostic process in both family medicine and pediatric practices in the state of Vermont. This project specifically on improving this process at South Burlington Family Practice in South Burlington Vermont but is generalizable to all practices caring for pediatric and adolescent patients. For this project emphasis was placed on creating a standardized workflow that is followed by all providers in the practice, creating educational material for caregivers who present with a behavioral concern for their child or adolescent, and establishing an efficient way to deliver screening tools to caregivers as well as teachers/guidance councilors in a fashion that will promote completion and return to the practice in a timely manner.
