SNAP Health Center & Administrative Software How does SNAP Health Center Complement Administrative Software
Secure, scalable, easy to install, easy to implement, easy to maintain….
SNAP Health Center Technology SNAP was developed using Visual Studio® and utilizes the software Microsoft SQL Server® as its database engine. SNAP includes free MSDE 2000; however, it may also be used with existing MS SQL 2000/2005/2008 installs.
Microsoft Certified Partner & ISV Solution Partner SNAP Health Center meets all installation requirements set by Microsoft® and has passed the Microsoft® ISV Platform Test.
Demographic Data Synchronization PSNI has a reputation for having some of the most robust and easy to use tools to import student data from your SIS.
Can SNAP Communicate with Administrative Software? SNAP Health Center includes three import tools Express, a SIF Agent, and SNAP Live. All three tools have successfully interfaced with PowerSchool. Express is a manual data import utility. If student data can be exported to a delimited or CSV file then the data can be expressed into SNAP. SNAP is SIF Compliant/Certified. SNAP is SIF Compliant/Certified.
SNAP Live connects to any ODBC compliant database and automatically, on a user-defined schedule, copies student data into SNAP Health Center's database.

Technology’s Role in Improving Health Services and District Performance
Technology in the School Nurse Office Decrease exposure to liabilities Reduce errors Improves quality of care Increase productivity Maximize efficiency Improves communication between nurse, parent, faculty, and administration
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, schools should have one nurse for every 750 students (NEA). About 50,000 school nurses are employed in America.
The workload of school nurses has increased since 1975, when the federal government mandated that schools accommodate disabled students, clearing the way for children with feeding tubes, catheters and other serious medical conditions to attend school (FoxNews.com). School Nurse Ratio / Statistics
Summary Health Statistics for U.S. Children: National Health Interview Survey, 2006
Nine percent of U.S. children under 18 years of age suffered from hay fever in the past 12 months, 12% from respiratory allergies and 13% from other allergies.Nine percent of U.S. children under 18 years of age suffered from hay fever in the past 12 months, 12% from respiratory allergies and 13% from other allergies. Four and one-half million children 3 – 17 years of age (7%) had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).Four and one-half million children 3 – 17 years of age (7%) had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
In 2006, there were 9.6 million children in the United States (13%) who had a health problem for which prescription medication had been taken regularly for at least 3 months.In 2006, there were 9.6 million children in the United States (13%) who had a health problem for which prescription medication had been taken regularly for at least 3 months.
In 2006, the majority of children in the United States enjoyed excellent health (40 million or 54%), and another 21 million children (28%) had very good health.In 2006, the majority of children in the United States enjoyed excellent health (40 million or 54%), and another 21 million children (28%) had very good health. On a Positive Note…….
Even if the majority of students are in overall good health, it still does not prevent the daily onslaught of visits that occur throughout the day.
….and for some students, the school nurse is the only healthcare professional they ever see.
A typical day can encompass… Injuries Preventing Infection Home Accidents Immunizations Hearing & Vision Testing Screenings mental, emotional, and social problems including arranging for disadvantaged students to receive breakfast and clothing and even helping students cope who critical home issues
A typical day may also include caring for students with diseases such as diabetes and asthma, and special needs like tube-feeding……
A typical day also includes a full schedule of peak flow metering, glucose readings and medication administrations – many of which are controlled substances, such as Adderall, Ritalin, & Vicodin
According to a 1999 Survey of School Nurses 98% have saved a child’s life 82% have identified an abused child 67% have counseled a depressed/suicidal student (NASN, 1999)
Regardless of these alarming statistics, school budgets do not change. Sometimes hiring additional nurses is not an option. The funds are not available; budgets have been stretched to their limits. Each of the district’s departments have acute needs to be met.
If hiring an additional nurse to meet the demand of the students’ healthcare needs is not an option, what options are there?
A nurse’s office that has the resources to support efficiency can increase productivity, while creating a more organized environment.
Technology and innovation are part of every environment. Imagine being with out some of the software that is currently being used in your office.
Secretaries & Administrative Assistants could not perform their work without a word processor. Accountants could not perform their tasks without financial software, Excel, or Quickbooks.
Administrators could not analyze their industry or achieve their goals without the reports provided by software.
So…how could a nurse? How could a nurse increase efficiency, productivity and maintain a legally compliant office without the right tools?
How can the nurse keep up with the growing population of the student body and the increasing complexities of childhood illness and disease?
Cost-Effective Solution for Insurance Billing Powerful Report Generator SNAP’s database is scalable, adaptable, and compatible with all types of school settings. Risk Management System Advanced Legal Protection: HIPAA & FERPA Compliant SIF Certified Microsoft Certified Partner & ISV Solution Partner Leading Edge Technical Support Superior Training Facilitators SNAP’s Management Benefits
Management Benefits The school nurse may be required to report on any number of topics, such as immunizations, student visits, risk related incidents, medications and screenings. It could take hours of filtering through hundreds (if not thousands) of Health Records and logbooks to compile data for a single report.
Management Benefits SNAP Health Center is an ideal reporting tool and solution, which can generate over 200 reports.
A few examples of the diverse reports available….. Office visits Office visits Frequent flyers Frequent flyers Event logs Event logs Injury & illness occurrence Injury & illness occurrence Medication/treatments Medication/treatments Immunization compliance Immunization compliance Year-end reports Year-end reports
A few examples of the diverse reports available….. Height/Weight and BMI Height/Weight and BMI Special needs Special needs Complete health records Complete health records Incident Incident Referrals Referrals Absenteeism Absenteeism Demographics Demographics
“School nurses must be aware of the rules of evidence regarding electronic documentation before investing in software…Programs that store health records must meet criteria that exceed requirements for educational records.” Schwab, Panettieri, and Bergren. (1998). Guidelines for School Nursing Documentation. NASN.
Is the All-In-One Administrative Software FERPA or HIPAA compliant? FERPA and HIPAA are the laws and regulations that bind the school nurse’s office. These privacy laws for health records can be quite stringent, complex, and expensive if violated.
SNAP Health Center Exceeds FERPA & HIPAA Requirements
Silent Intrusion Alarm System Access Tracking Date & Library Audit History Designated Medical Administrator Protected Confidential Notes PIN Requirements Does your Software have Advanced Legal Protection?
Secure Login – Password Protected Screen Saver – with Password Protection Routine Program Updates to Comply with FERPA & HIPAA Laws Medication & Visit Log Overwrite Protection
These state of the art security features are an integral part of SNAP Health Center.
Who Handles the Tech Support? Who will answer the support calls? Can the Support Team provide RNs and former School Nurses that can understand in-depth nursing/medical questions and the complex nature of individual state immunization regulations? Do software engineers and program developers respond to the technical needs, program issues, or questions?
Does the Software Test to State Specific Requirements? Does the company’s nursing staff continuously work to interpret each state’s individual immunization requirements, and provide annual updates to download into the program? Will each student’s immunization record be evaluated against these requirements for compliance?
PSNI’s nursing staff will interpret your state’s requirements, provide annual updates, and validate for compliance; making it easy for the school nurse to download into the SNAP program.
Has the Software been Designed to Reduce Exposure to Liability? Asthma, diabetes, and food allergies have continued to rise among school-age children. In addition, the increasing need to administer medications for treating ADD, behavior disorders, and chronic pain increases the nurses’ accountability for monitoring controlled prescription drugs. These issues subject the schools/districts and nurses to various liabilities.
SNAP Health Center has been specifically designed for the school nurse office and offers a variety of capabilities that reduce exposure to diverse liabilities.
