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.

CDIS is compatible with existing technology and infrastructure, streamlines data collection, includes flexible reporting, and enables enhanced communication between key stakeholders and healthcare professionals, leading to happier and healthier families.This leads to happier and healthier families.
