Pilot population Project description Target population(s) Usual frequency duration of individual data collection Launch date
Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treated in an outpatient clinic) The Vanderbilt ADHD TAILOR tool allowed Vanderbilt healthcare providers to send the Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic and/or Follow-up Rating Scale [26] questions to parents electronically. TAILOR also queried the child’s teacher with parent consent. The provider received survey results by secure email before the child’s next planned clinic visit.
The ADHD pilot included one attending physician’s resident clinic.

Children with autism spectrum disorder or other developmental delays receiving services from the Early Intervention team The Vanderbilt TAILOR Early Intervention (EI) tool allowed Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) behavioral consultants to send brief text message surveys to a child’s parent to collect outcomes. Questions were developed based on previously employed TRIAD program assessments, and queried the frequency of work on a skill area on a given day, parent’s confidence in working on the skill, and the child’s success with a given skill. The consultant was able to view the latest survey results before each home visit. Parent/guardian
