Well-Child Visit

The well-child/adolescent visit (WCV) is the cornerstone of pediatric care. SBHC providers should conduct these visits annually because they’re not only a chance to deliver comprehensive, evidence-based preventive care — they can also allow providers to identify health risks early and then intervene. A comprehensive WCV can improve performance in the four other national measures as well: annual risk assessment; body mass index measurement and nutrition and physical activity counseling; depression screen; and Chlamydia screen.
