Weight Assessment and Counseling for Children/Adolescents (WCC) and Adolescent Preventive Care (APC)

New York State Department of Health (SDOH) and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) have both stressed the importance of guiding children and adolescents towards healthy behaviors. SDOH and NCQA outline the importance of correct medical record documentation to assure that providers’ counseling efforts are acknowledged. One way to ensure that patients are appropriately assessed is for providers to use a checklist to document their work. Fidelis Care has created one-page documents for WCC and APC that are easy to use and cover the key elements of both measures. Providers need to complete the forms annually and place them in their medical record, or scan them into their electronic medical record.
