Abstract

Approximately 1 million children are physically or sexually abused each year in the United States. Accurate diagnosis of these children and subsequent extensive legal intervention requires a thorough clinical assessment as well as legal documentation. A Web-based application developed for the remote sharing of child maltreatment assessment among multiple child protection providers is presented. Usability data was collected from medical personnel at three remote Utah Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) and one urban tertiary children's hospital. Qualitative findings are summarized and satisfaction differences are reported between remote sites and their referral tertiary center.
