Behavioral/Emotional Screening Tool for Clinical Settings

Behavioral/Emotional Screening Tool for clinical settings (E. Ozer, PhD, Sara Buckelew, MD, Veronika Mesheriakova, UCSF)

Health-e-Check, originally developed by Ozer and colleagues through AHRQ funding, is being updated with the goal of streamlining integration into the electronic medical record to serve as a prototype for other LEAH projects and beyond.  Health e-Check provides a screening report to adolescent providers to help them respond to a range of behavioral/emotional health areas (as recommended by preventive care guidelines). Health-e-Check is completed by adolescents on a tablet immediately before a visit, with results available to the clinician during the visit. The project is serving as a model for the integration of screening results into clinical electronic health record systems.
