An efficient, secure, and customizable web-based tool designed to simplify the nursing documentation process in your district.
School nurses play a key role in the success of students, and their responsibilities are not limited to simply providing nursing services. In reality, their work can include keeping on top of multiple compliance requirements related to daily and PRN medication delivery, documenting office visits and scheduled nursing services, and creating Individual Healthcare Plans (IHPs).
To help meet the specific needs of school nurses, PCG is pleased to offer EDPlan Health: an efficient, secure, and customizable web-based tool designed to simplify the nursing documentation process in your district.

EDPlan Health allows nurses to set default values for certain fields, which can save nurses valuable time as they document routine services. Dropdown options and multi-select lists are configurable and customized to meet your district’s needs.
EDPlan Health’s Medication Daily Administration Logging Wizard provides a daily calendar of all students’ medication needs including information like the scheduled time, status, medication, and dosage. This information is restricted to the schools/students for which the nurse(s) have access. Additionally, this wizard has a color-coordinated visual indicator to show whether or not a medication has been logged: green indicating the medication has been logged, and red indicating a medication has not yet been logged. Lastly, this wizard can also be used to track medication inventories.
Health Information Page
A comprehensive page displays student health information such as health alerts, nursing services, and medication services. Nurses can add or edit information based on user permissions. All previously delivered nursing and medication services are saved to the student’s record and are accessible to other nurses should the student change schools.
All nursing and medication services are captured and maintained permanently in a student’s record and will follow the student if he or she changes schools.
Individual Healthcare Plans
EDPlan Health allows nurses to create IHPs that list nursing diagnoses, goals, interventions, and outcomes. Nurses can create both draft and final IHPs, and information regarding any student’s medications will automatically pull in from the Health Information Page.
