"I was working as a school nurse in the early 2000s when I first heard about the possibility of an EHR system for schools," said Marie DeSisto, RN, MSN, NCSN, director of nurses for Waltham Public Schools.
"My colleagues and I began to search for the most appropriate EHR system and found one that was specifically designed for nurses." Since Waltham Public Schools implemented its EHR system, nurses across their district have been able to better track student injuries, illnesses and conditions, as well as help improve students' overall health. According to DeSisto, data configured via the EHR system was especially crucial in a decision regarding the school district's recess program. "By using our EHR system, we were able to pull body mass index (BMI) data for students in each grade level. Our data showed us that 40 percent of students in our district were either overweight or obese," said DeSisto. "We have always measured student height and weight, but our EHR system documented the problem and let us put that information to use." DeSisto and her colleagues then presented the alarming data to each of the principals in the district, as well as the superintendent, to showcase the need for students to continue with physical exercise every day. The data played a major role in their decision to reinstate health education programs and to not cut recess. "That is just one example of how school nurses are using this data to better help their students," said DeSisto. "Data is also being used to help other departments, such as physical education, athletic training, and guidance counseling, to develop their curriculums as well." According to DeSisto, EHR systems can take time to implement, but she welcomes and praises the enormous impact they can have on a school nurse's day-to-day activity. "There is a learning curve at the very beginning of implementation, but a nurse has the ability to review data of hundreds of students in minutes, as opposed to the hours it would take with paper records," said DeSisto. For those looking to implement an EHR system, DeSisto advises nurses to follow these helpful tips:
