23 Feb Record Review for Independent Schools
Each year we learn more from our clients as they describe different issues they face in the day-to-day management of medical records. Many school nurses tell us it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks during the summer to collect and review as many forms as possible. If the review isn’t done by the first day of school, it’s nearly impossible to collect the remainder of the information as well as juggle 30 to 60 sick visits a day.
Because this is such a daunting task, several schools asked if we could review records on their behalf, so we developed our Record Review service to fulfill that need. SMR users can request to add this service to remove the administrative burden and liability surrounding student health information. By off-loading this task and letting Magnus Health do the work, nurses are able to focus on student care.
The benefits are simple: instant efficiency gains and significant liability reduction.
When a school opts for Record Review, we collect, organize, and then review each document for completion and accuracy. Using certified reviewers, registered nurses, and other records-trained individuals, all records are reviewed within 72 hours of receipt. Beacuse of our timely and thorough completion of all documents, schools reduce their liability from missing forms or crucial pieces of information.
