An improved cloud based EHR system for a school district in Kansas.

A school district in Kansas, which serves 20,000 active students and 32 public schools, needed a school EHR with enhanced features to stay in compliance with the state health guidelines and CDC.

The challenge

The school district was having difficulty managing student medical information and sought an improved EduHealth software upgrade with customized features, such as an upgraded user interface (UI), active directory log-in, gifted student health tracking, emergency reporting, and chart visits. 

Our solution

EduHealth delivered an enhanced cloud-based school EHR with an intuitive UI that supports the nurses’ daily chores, like medical administration, treatment, charts, and documents that comply with the state rules.

To simplify the management of roles and access to the system, we set up an active directory login. Now schools can authorize any nursing staff to access the EduHealth system by using the login details that they prefer.

With chart visits, school nurses can keep track of their activities, and it now has a feature to notify the parents too. The new customizations also include a feature to track all the active gifted students in all the schools of the district who need care.

It also includes an emergency reporting function, which was specifically created to report emergency issues to the state. The new upgrades can help the school district-based health personnel perform their duties efficiently.

Product Highlights

  • The customized version of the EduHealth school EHR helped the school district to streamline and manage the health data for each student by integrating perfectly with the existing SIS and storing all the data safely on the cloud.   
  • The improved UI, filters, reports, and actions made the tasks of the school nurses and the health authorities in the district easier in capturing, documenting, and managing every individual student’s related information and enabled a better health system overall.  
  • The new features also helped the school district health system provide better facilities and support for gifted students’ educational and health needs. In addition, schools in the district can now alert the state or a nearby health facility in the event of an emergency.
