Child Health Improvement through Computer Automation – Child Neurology (CHICA-CN) Grant and Partnership Opportunity

The Child Neurology Foundation has launched a new partnership opportunity to make our clinical decision support system available for two child neurology departments or organizations to use for free. The system is called Child Health Improvement through Computer Automation – Child Neurology (CHICA-CN) and was designed by CNF in partnership with Digital Health Solutions. 

CNF will also provide a $25,000 patient care advancement grant to support research or quality improvement projects related to using the system. To be considered for this partnership, your site must be using Epic, and have buy-in from organizational leadership, including the neurology department and administration. The implementation of the system and associated grant project will take place from 2023 through the end of 2024. 

CHICA-CN is a proven clinical decision support system, reducing time spent documenting patient visits and increasing the implementation of recommended guidelines in child neurology.  It serves patients that speak English and Spanish. This video shows how the system works. 

This opportunity is offered on a first-come, first-served basis; email Cyndi Wright ([email protected]) to set up an informational call to learn more.
