The Child Development Information System (CDIS) is a computer application. It makes the delivery of healthcare more effective and efficient.

It does this by:

  • improving safety and outcomes
  • expediting service delivery
  • maximising health care provider utilisation
  • keeping costs under control, by eliminating duplicate data entry and other significant redundancies.

About the system

The system was built as part of an integrated healthcare solution. This is known as the Electronic Knowledge and Information Data System (eKIDS).

The CDIS works with both outdated and new applications. You can tailor it to fit your information requirements and workflow preferences.

The CDIS stores data within a reliable and secure centralised database.

Functionality includes:

  • tracking client activity
  • service and history recording
  • referral workflow
  • appointment and clinical availability scheduling
  • clinical assessment
  • treatment and review
  • detailed reporting.

The CDIS has many advantages including:

  • compatibility with existing technology and infrastructure
  • the ability to streamline data collection
  • flexible reporting
  • enhances communication between key stakeholders and healthcare professionals.

This leads to outcomes that include happier and healthier families.
