Well Child Visits

Get kids into the office for preventive well child visits—that’s the goal of the North Dakota Statewide Well Child Check Collaborative, a statewide, multi-organization effort. To help you accomplish that goal, the collaborative has developed resources to help our patients, families and communities at large understand the benefits of well child visits and the importance of preventive health beginning early in life.


Focus areas

In comparison with national benchmarks, North Dakota has lower than average completion rates for well child visits. In an effort to increase North Dakota's success, the collaborative focuses on three areas. 

Communication and marketing

To develop consistent messages for all North Dakota partners caring for children to utilize in promoting well child visits in the state.

Public health partnerships 

To develop partnerships between any organizations that might be caring for children to promote the best care possible.

Education needs for clinical partners and families 

To establish an educational plan to assist in promotion and partnerships among all care providers specific to well child visits in North Dakota.
