Health Needs Assessments are required as children progress through Primary and Secondary schools. They're used for all 0-19 Healthy Child questionnaires about health.
For pre-school aged children, parents are asked to complete a health assessment. At various stages in their education, children complete health questionnaires, with parental consent required on occasion. Once completed, the questionnaires are reviewed and triaged dependant on answers. this can be an expensive and difficult process.
SchoolScreener® Health Needs
SchoolScreener® Health Needs has been developed for automating and managing work-flows of data and associated administration. This includes electronic communications via the Parent Portal and business intelligence requirements from health assessments in schools.
The platform developed by Thomson Screening uses the same software infrastucture as other SchoolScreener® applications. So, it's proven by use. It automates all data management, administration, reporting, audit and pathway management, as required. The platform is optimised for working with large groups of children at a school cluster, cohort or locality-wide level. SchoolScreener® Health Needs assessments can be completed online by the child in school or by a parent at home.
No manual data management by the provider is needed. It can be tailored to each provider's requirements, including question sets in any language, reporting and audit.
Each questionnaire has evaluation criteria according to provider requirements. From this, those children that require intervention are flagged for easy recognition. The process filters those that require attention and those that do not, limiting the amount of time needed to look at each individual response.
You have all the tools your organisation needs:
- resource planning;
- evidence-based resource allocation;
- evaluate the impact on a group or area of certain policies;
- feedback to schools.
All SchoolScreener® products include training, support and IT from Thomson Screening.
Data can be shared with other agencies, such as CAHMS, according to your locality's child health needs.
