Health Information

Does anyone use the Health Information section of PowerSchools? What works well and what doesn't? We are about to transition to PowerSchools and I would like insight from current users. Thanks in advance for your help! Kristine McClary, RN (East Samford School, Nurse)

Re: Health Information

Our district uses the Health information/screens in PowerSchool. Overall, my nurses and health assistants feel it is easy to use and gives them the information needed. I have modified the screenings slightly to accomodate what we do verus what PowerSchool has set as default. The customization of those pages is not completely condusive, so that is a negative. Otherwise, everything else is great. In addtion, I have created some reports, using Enterprise reporting, which makes pulling health data quick for my health staff. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact me. 

 

Have a great day!!

Re: Health Information - Office Visit Reports

Hi Heather,  

 

This is Kelley -- 3 wk old School Nurse reaching out!  

 

I am pretty familiar with EHRs and database solutions like PS.  We did get out a decent Medical Alert Report after a significant effort from my team.

 

I would like to pull Visit and Health Screen Reports.   

 

Slim pickins for school nurse discussions.  Is there another location on the portal for School Nurses?  I'd like to exchange information about our Med alert process and see if there are opportunities that I am missing.

Re: Health Information - Office Visit Reports

If you are in district office, go to system reports on the left hand side then click on engine and it will give you a health office visit log you can use to see what you have for visits.  This is my first time in PowerSchool Community.  I am hoping to find out how to run more reports other than this.  I would like to be able to break down my visits by time, total of each type of event (HA's, N/V/D, etc) and some other miscellaneous data.

Thank you for reaching out in the Community to connect with other PowerSchool SIS users!

 

We are working with the PowerSchool SIS team to review the type of reporting that is available for health information.  We will update this thread with further information.  

Thank you for your patience once we are able to gather more information!

Re: Health Information - Office Visit Reports

@Jmartian 

Thank you for reaching out to the PowerSchool Community!

 

We apologize for the delay and truly appreciate your patience with us!


Health information such as the date, time, and duration of office visits is housed and can be exported using Data Export Manager.  I have provided the steps below that should guide you through the process of generating the report in Data Export Manager.

 

System > Page and Data Management > Data Export Manager

and select,

 

Category: PowerSchool Data Sets
Export From: Student: Office Visits

 

You can use the filter option to sort by the VISIT DATE and see all the visits for a certain day. You can also include the fields of VISITTIMEIN and VISITTIMEOUT to see how long the visits lasted. You can also save the template for future requirements!

 

I hope this helps! Please reach out to us if you require further assistance!

Re: Health Information

KTMcClary,

Did you get any responses that were helpful about Health functions in PowerSchool.  We have been able to provide cumulative reports on Medical Alerts and Allergies for our team, but it was not easy.

 

I have several questions about Office Visits and Immunizations.  Please share anything that you have.

Re: Health Information

Hi Kelley - We are not live yet. There have been seminars for our administration regarding the teaching aspects - but the health component has never been addressed. I wish I could help you...but you know more about it than I do! Good luck!
