If you are a parent, you know just how frustrating it can be dealing with your child’s medical records when it comes to school. Who do you need to call? What documents will need to be shared? Even getting the records from Point A to Point B is not as straightforward as it should be (for parents or for schools).
CareDox: Connecting Public Schools with the Healthcare Ecosystem
Fortunately, an organization called CareDox is gaining traction nationally with their HIPAA and FERPA-compliant technology that efficiently connects schools, families, and healthcare providers.
The founders of CareDox initially started off trying to create a tool for parents to manage their own family’s health information. They quickly found out that there was a huge need for software to support public school health programs, so they expanded their focus to both parents and school districts.
CareDox now works with schools around the country, providing technology and health care services for over 2 million students at no cost to them or their schools!
Healthy Schools: Keeping Students, Schools, and Communities Healthy
Speaking of health care services, Healthy Schools LLC, affiliated with CareDox, now exists to provide flu shots, immunizations, and annual check-ups for lower income communities and students, free of charge for parents.
Currently trusted by over 100 school districts and growing, Healthy Schools promises easy sign-ups for parents, in-school care (so you never have to worry about finding time to bring your child to a clinic), no paperwork, and most importantly, $0 copays. Healthy Schools bills insurance companies for their services, not families.
