Software automates school health records

Software automates school health records - 08/15/04: "A small Michigan software company has quietly been marketing a program called HealthOffice to help schools across the country streamline health care procedures, and obtain much-needed Medicaid reimbursements.
School health care officials, including school nurses and special education professionals, are required by both professional and state authorities to keep detailed, confidential records about each child that receives their care.
These documents have traditionally been kept by hand, a time-consuming and inefficient method of tracking such things as treatments for minor illnesses, medication dosing schedules and other services.
To keep up with the paperwork, providers often save record-keeping for the end of the school day or take it home with them. But delaying documentation can compromise the accuracy of the records. "
