What is a school nurse EHR? And why every nurse needs one.

Join Registered Nurse, Doris Thayer, and Strategic Account Executive, Christine Drucker, in a discussion on true electronic health record (EHR) systems, how they can benefit your school, and how to request an EHR system for your facility.

While many schools and districts implement a student information system (SIS) with a health module, this does not provide the same efficiencies as a true EHR that includes health records, immunization information, and much, much more.

In this session you will learn:
  • The key features and benefits of an EHR
  • How to identify major differences between a SIS with a health module and a true EHR
  • How to build a business case and present it to your administration for implementation of an EHR within your district
