Rastorfer, Darl
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
From February 2008 through April 2011, School Health Connection, a program of the Louisiana Public Health Institute, developed an electronic health information management system for newly established school-based health centers in Greater New Orleans. School Health Connection was established as part of a broader effort to restore community health services and introduce school-based clinics after Hurricane Katrina. Project Director Gaurav Nagrath reported the following key results: (1) School Health Connection procured, instituted and maintained a cross-site, integrated electronic medical record and practice management system at 10 school-based health centers; (2) Some 40 doctors, nurses, and social workers who provide primary care at the 10 school-based health centers used the system to understand children's health status and document clinical encounters; and (3) More than 10,500 patient records were created through the electronic medical record and practice management system. These records documented more than 50,000 patient visits.
