From 1998-2020, the Children’s HealthWatch survey instrument was administered during waiting periods in exam rooms in the Emergency Department or in Primary Care Clinics.
From January 2021 onward due to changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the survey has been administered by phone as well as in person in the clinics.
During the survey, interviewers collect information about demographics, child health and development, caregiver health, housing, household food security, federal assistance program utilization and access, employment, income, financial literacy, oral health care, utilities, child care, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Experiences of Discrimination.

Starting in Spring 2021, our survey changed to a modular format to allow us to cover more topics without overburdening our caregiver participants. The survey is comprised of a core survey that all participating caregivers answer and six rotating modules with different foci.
