MagnusHealth-logo-stacked-noBG2018 was a big year in terms of bringing the best and most seamless experience to Magnus users. Along with several other solutions, we established new partnerships with industry leaders for Student Information Systems and Athletic Tracking solutions to bring our client schools the most complete and comprehensive health management software to date. Here are the 2018 Top Magnus Moments:

alphabet-arts-and-crafts-blog-459688As 2018 is drawing to a close, we wanted to take a moment to highlight the top Magnus blog posts that we published this year. From providing our readers with best practices on how to use the Magnus software to busting flu myths, we’ve had a lot to share with you over the past 12 months. Check out some of most read blog posts from this year!

achievement-blur-charity-1493374As the year winds down, we all find ourselves reflecting on everything we have accomplished this year, and we start looking ahead to what the next year will bring. This is the perfect time to not only be grateful for all we have but to recognize and give back to the community. Here at Magnus, we believe in the power of making things better and getting the job done. We are incredibly proud of our team for their enthusiasm to bring positivity into the community.

This year, Magnus is giving back by donating to two very special organizations:

Ed… And we’re back! Here at Magnus, the third quarter is ALWAYS a busy one. With Back to School during this time, our phone lines are busy, inboxes are full, and form submission hits a new record high year after year. With that said, our Q3 Employee of the Quarter is a special one. It means this person really shined during our most hectic time of the year. Ed, our Lead Product Analyst, has been exceptionally demonstrating the Magnus values, and we sure are proud of him!

Let me tell you a little bit about our Employee of the Quarter, Ed… Ed is a problem solver… Literally. His role here at Magnus is to listen to our customer feedback and recommendations regarding the Magnus software and to determine how we can make the product better with every new feature release. He leads our Product Team with hard-work, team collaboration, and some dad jokes to keep it fun. Read on to learn more about Ed!

Students interact with a lot… A LOT… of people who care about them. Starting with the parents and guardians, as well as many other family members, plus babysitters, the doctors, and primary care physicians come into their lives at a very early age. Once they start school, they have teachers, guidance counselors, and school nurses making sure they are healthy and happy on campus. And, don’t forget about the bus drivers! As they grow older, they start to become more active and social, which leads to them joining clubs and teams and other activity groups. Add up all of the people in a student’s life, and that is a ton of interaction as they grow up and go through school.

We here at Magnus believe that the best part of working in schools is having the chance to improve student health care and safety. The more we work with school nurses, coaches, and administrators, the more we realize the biggest concern is for their student health. From gathering and organizing the health forms, to making sure these records are accessible when they are needed, Magnus Health is there to help you through the entire process.

kidraisinghandCommunity is important to each and every one of us here at Magnus. We’re proud to call Raleigh, NC and West Chester, PA, our co-home! We’re passionate about helping others, especially students and schools. Even though our Help Desk call and email volume increases during Back to School time, we are all working hard, company-wide, to make sure each and every Magnus user has the help they need to successfully turn in their health forms and be prepared to return to the classroom.

Magnus Mobile 2.0 is here! Our mobile app has gone through a whole lot of work, and is better than ever! We know the importance of the mobile device, that generally everyone has their phone or tablet nearby, and we definitely understand the significance of always being prepared to care for your students on and off campus. So we took our mobile app, put it under a microscope, then updated the look, features, and functionality, and made sure it was up to the Magnus standards. The New Magnus Mobile App is now Live for your use in tracking student health information and being emergency prepared!

IanWe’re back with the last round of our Magnus Spotlight blog posts featuring our Leadership Team here at Magnus Health! Previously we learned that our CEO Brian Biddulph-Krentar loves soccer and working out, but cannot live without pizza... we met our Director of Marketing, Inese Hoover, a travel hockey Mom who loves the Chicago Blackhawks... and we introduced our newest Director, Dino Skerlos, who joined our downtown Raleigh office last August to manage the Sales team... when he’s not golfing.

Now let’s meet the final member of the Magnus Leadership Team that holds down the fort on the software side of our company. Our Director of Technology, Ian Panulla, is the man behind the scenes that keeps the Magnus system up and running. Ian comes from the CareFlow team with the acquisition, where he was the designer and creator of the CareFlow software. He is the architect behind the software, and he drinks more coffee than the rest of the office combined.

Rounding out the Magnus Health Employee of the Quarter recipients for the year 2017, we’d like to recognize Candice, our Operations Coordinator. Candice is a jack of all trades. You can find her in all parts of the office lending a helping hand. She works closely with our Directors and Managers to keep the Magnus mission statement at the forefront of everything they do, while also coordinating Finance Operations and spearheading many other interdepartmental projects and meetings. Learn more about Candice from our conversation with her below!

Not only does Magnus have valuable team members across all departments, but our Directors keep Magnus growing and improving each week. This month, we’ve chatted with the Dynamic Duo - our Directors of the Sales and Marketing teams, Inese Hoover and Dino Skerlos.

Inese, our Marketing Director, keeps the team busy, but organized. While spreading the word about Magnus through multiple campaign channels, and bringing in leads from new schools, she keeps the team on their toes with fresh ideas for generating new business.

Dino, our Director of Sales, works with the Account Executives to show prospective clients the value of implementing the Magnus solution at their schools. Dino has already helped Magnus grow significantly in the short time he has been with the team.

  1. A one-of-a-kind cloud-based computer software that is the most innovative way to collect, track, and manage school health information.
  2. A team of unique, hard-working individuals, who have a mutual passion to improve student health and safety so students can focus on learning.
  3. A magnificent place to work.

When you pass by the Magnus Health office in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, you would not know that inside, there is a group of people who are committed to ensuring safety in schools throughout the nation. You also would not be able to guess the color of some of the interior walls... Anyone? Anyone? C’mon, they are painted bright orange, of course!

Not only does Magnus consist of valuable team members across all departments, but our Directors and Managers keep Magnus growing and improving week-in and week-out.

Our leadership team is made up of five dedicated, passionate, and professional Directors. With the start of 2018, we’ve decided to highlight them each so not only our wonderful customers, but everyone in our industry, can get to know them!

We will kick off the Magnus Leadership spotlight with our CEO, Brian Biddulph-Krentar. Brian currently resides in West Chester, Pennsylvania, and travels to the Raleigh Headquarters at least twice a month. Brian has been in the healthcare industry for quite some time. Actually, we’ll let him speak for himself! 

deidra 1.jpgOur Help Desk Manager Deidra has been named the Magnus Employee of the Quarter for Q3, 2017! This is a well deserved award for Deidra, as she has been on the Magnus team for many years and effectively manages a team of employees through the toughest season of the year: back to school time aka “Peak Season.” In preparation for the new school year, starting as early as June, phone calls and emails to the Magnus Help Desk increase dramatically in volume. Deidra and her team assist parents and college students with navigating the Magnus system to ensure they have a successful experience. They are ready to help and answer every end user question! The Help Desk department maintains a high customer satisfaction rating throughout this busy time, and Deidra is always happy to report the positive feedback her team receives about caller experience to the rest of the Magnus team!

MartikaHedgepeth-1.jpg

This year, we are starting something new at Magnus Health by recognizing an “Employee of the Quarter.” This person must be someone who demonstrates Magnus’ core values, which include: teamwork, positive energy, and focusing on what matters. At Magnus, we use the phrases “Make it Happen” and “Make it Better” constantly, to remind our team to not only be proactive and put forth a great effort, but to also be problem solvers, to think outside of the box, and to contribute to improving our company every day. This quarter, our company chose Martika Hedgepeth as the Employee of the Quarter. We sat down with Martika and chatted about what it takes to earn this title.
