B-Vitals© is designed to be an indispensable part of pediatric diagnosis by providing early identification of behavioral health problems and offering evidenced-based recommendations for the treating provider, child, and family.
B-Vitals© was developed by psychologists who are passionate about helping children and their families. The developers have worked with thousands of children and their families during their careers. Through their experience with numerous pediatricians, they learned that there was no single, user-friendly, comprehensive assessment that could quickly provide pediatricians with a behavioral health history of the child.
The developers decided to create an assessment that would help doctors as well as parents. B-Vitals© was designed to identify behavioral and emotional issues early so that intervention could occur before problems became severe and long lasting.
B-Vitals© is easy to complete and should take no more than 20 minutes. Completed on a computer or tablet, parents are asked general questions in ten domains of a child’s life. Depending upon the parent’s response, more and more specific questions are presented to be answered by the parent. Once completed, the test is immediately scored by proprietary algorithms and a report is sent to the doctor. The doctor will review the report with the parent as well as suggested recommendations. A copy of a report with the recommendations is also given to the parent.
Passionate about developing B-Vitals© because of cost to children when problems become ingrained.
