    1. NYC School Health Automated Student Health Record Oxiris Barbot, M.D. Medical Director December 6, 2006

    2. Mission Promote the physical, emotional, social and environmental health of the 1.2 million public school children of New York City.

    3. Office of School Health Structure Department of Health and Mental Hygiene HPDP Division ~800 nurses 54 doctors ~ 150 public health advisers Department of Education Office of Youth Development and School-Community Services ~300 nurses 5 Health Content Experts Organizational structureOrganizational structure

    4. Program Responsibilities Health Services Physician of Last Resort Students with IEP and Section 504 Needs Nursing, OT, PT New Entrant and Other Exams Vision and Hearing Screening Coordinate response to communicable diseases Immunization and other mandates compliance

    6. ASHR Goals Computerize student health-related data Easily accessible, yet secure Improve the way health related information is maintained, tracked and retrieved For the purpose of providing medical services, tracking mandated activities and providing follow up on identified health needs (case management). Supply real-time data to Syndromic Surveillance Average tenure of a student is 3 years per school. Records often misplacedAverage tenure of a student is 3 years per school. Records often misplaced

    7. Automated Student Health Record (ASHR) Web-based EHR In house ASHR 1.0 development Spring 2003 Limited pilot September 2003 Complete roll out of 811 sites June 2006 Phase in ASHR 2.0 September 2006

    8. ASHR Content Student demographics (imported from DOE) PMD & specialist contact info Immunizations (imported from DOE) Chronic Diagnoses Allergies Activities Restrictions Vision and Hearing Medication orders Individual health plans New Admission Exam Asthma profile Walk-in (exports to Syndromic Surveillance) Diabetes module (under construction)

    9. Use Case State and City mandate that every newly entering student is required to submit a new admission examination (NAE aka 211S)

    10. New Admission Exam Form (211S) Form may change from year to year Some fields are age dependant e.g. lead Some fields are grade dependant e.g. TST Some fields are historically poorly complied with e.g. complete vision screening to rule out amblyopia only 10% record separate visual acuity for each eye and a fusion testonly 10% record separate visual acuity for each eye and a fusion test

    11. Current Work and Data Flow Model

    18. Goal: Electronic Data Exchange

    19. Benefits and Challenges: OSH Benefits Improve case management and initiation of related services Increase number of students with mandated exams Reduce paper that could potentially get lost Reduce redundancy Reallocate staff time to other school health activities Challenges Identity management of outside providers Wet signatures Communicating with numerous EHRs Administering system for tracking consents

    20. Benefits and Challenges: Providers Benefits Improve care coordination with schools Improve productivity Time to complete forms Redoing work already done Challenges Determining which diagnoses to transmit and which not to Keeping parents in the loop Administering consent system

    21. Benefits and Challenges: Parents Benefits Compliance with school requirements Less missed school and work days Improved care coordination between PCP and school system Challenges Knowing what is being transmitted to schools

    22. Overall Goals for NAE Electronic Transmission Traditional school health ensure full participation in school activities Students are free of communicable diseases Students academic needs accommodated Delivery of direct services Public Health Oriented School Health Population-based chronic disease management (chronic disease reporting) Resource allocation PH equivalent of clinical decision support PH equivalent of clinical decision support; e.g complete vision screens, prompting for medication services or other medical/related services needsPH equivalent of clinical decision support; e.g complete vision screens, prompting for medication services or other medical/related services needs

    23. Benefits of Bi-directionality: Parents Minimize unnecessary go-between activities Updates on childs status e.g. # of visits to medical room Reports on when and what type of information was transmitted

    24. Benefits of Bi-directionality: Provider List of patients and schools they attend with nurse contact info Medication services Related services e.g. PT/OT/ST Accommodations e.g. barrier-free schools Updates on patient status e.g. # of visits to medical room Profile as compared to other providers

    25. Benefits of Bi-directionality: OSH Improve communications with providers Expand from NAE to doctors notes

    26. Data transfer to Syndromic Surveillance Began March 1, 2005 Data fields transferred Student Age - Walk-In Time In ATS School DBN - Grade Level Official Class - Zip Complaint Description - Comments Record Last Update Process Nightly Data transfer Service (DTS) of de-identified student walk-in data by school

    28. Syndromic Surveillance Potential Syndromes tracked Allergy - AsthmaResp Diarrhea - FeverFlu Injury - Neuro Rash - Vomiting Once a week email now; daily once system fully functional Potential for tracking to citywide, but too early to determine overall utility
