SNAP Health Center and Administrative Software

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
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 Live connects to any ODBC
compliant database and automatically, on
a user-defined schedule, copies
student data into SNAP Health
Center's database.
This new state-of-the-art automatic
student update tool can import up to 59
fields from your student information
system (SIS).
No School too Small,
No District too Big
SNAP is suitable for any school/district
size, and is scalable to meet the needs
of a growing student population.
SNAP can manage database volumes
for large districts with hundreds of
schools and infinite student populations
to smaller independent schools

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
About 50,000 school nurses
are employed in America.
According to the Center for Disease Control
and Prevention, schools should have one
nurse for every 750 students (NEA).
School Nurse Ratio / Statistics
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 (
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.
• Four and one-half million children 3 –
17 years of age (7%) had Attention
Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
• 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.
On a Positive Note…….
• 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.
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…
Preventing Infection
Home Accidents
Hearing & Vision
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
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
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
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?

“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).

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.

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.
Immunization Statistics
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.
