Terms of Service Agreement for the Well-Visit Planner (09/20/2016)

This online tool, the Well-Visit Planner, and website (www.wellvisitplanner.org), was developed to improve well-child care for children up through age 6. The information in this tool is based on recommendations established by the American Academy of Pediatrics' Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents, 3rd Edition. The tool helps parents to customize the well-child visit to their family's needs by helping them identify and prioritize their health risks and concerns before their well-child appointment. This means that parents and providers are better able to communicate and address the family's needs during the well-child visit.

The purpose of the Well Visit Planner is to ask parents questions about their child and family and the kinds of topics they want to discuss at their child’s well-child visit so that the health care provider can use this information to customize the visit to the needs of the parent and child. Secondly, the Well Visit Planner provides educational information about topics that are recommended for health care providers to talk about. Parents and providers can use the tool to improve their time together during the well-child visit.

The tool was developed and is maintained by the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) at Oregon Health and Science University, in the Department of Pediatrics, now at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health. The CAHMI originally developed the tool as a part of research project (2008-2012) supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Research Program (R40 MC08959 03-00). The findings from the research study suggested that parents and providers valued the tool, and that it helped to improve the well-child care experience.

It should take you between 10-15 minutes to complete the Well-Visit Planner online tool. You will be asked to do the following:

  1. Provide basic information about the child who will have the well-visit.
  2. Answer a series of questions about your child and family that will help your child's health care provider know what they may need to focus on in the visit.
  3. Pick the topics that you want your child's doctor to talk with you and give you information about.
  4. Receive a "Visit Guide" that you can use at your child's well-visit. This guide highlights the topics you wanted to discuss and should be brought to the visit.
