Use Agreement

The Well-Visit Planner (“WVP”) is an online tool and website (www.wellvisitplanner.org), developed to improve well-child care for children up through age 6. The information in the WVP 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 WVP helps parents customize the well-child visit to their family's needs by helping identify and prioritize their health risks and concerns before their well-child appointment. The WVP helps parents and their child’s clinicians/providers better 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 clinician/provider can use that 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 clinicians/providers to talk about. Parents and clinicians/providers can use the WVP to improve their time together during the well-child visit.

The WVP was initially developed by the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI) at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), and is now maintained by the Center for the Advancement of Innovative Health Practices DBA CAHMI. The CAHMI originally developed the WVP 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 clinicians/providers valued the WVP, and that it helped to improve the well-childcare experience.

The WVP should take you about 10 minutes to complete online. To complete the WVP you will be asked to do the following:

  1. Provide basic information about the child who is attending the visit.
  2. Answer questions about your child and family that will help your child's clinician/provider know what they may need to focus on during the visit.
  3. Pick the topics and information you wish to discuss with your child's doctor at the visit.
  4. Receive a "Visit Guide" that you can use at your child's well-visit. This guide highlights the topics you seek to discuss.  The completed guide should be brought to the visit.

You have the option of creating your own account with the WVP. You can use your account to plan future visits, complete unfinished visits, add other eligible children, and review previous Visit Guides and educational information.
