2018 was a big year in terms of bringing the best and most seamless experience to Magnus users. Along with several other solutions, we established new partnerships with industry leaders for Student Information Systems and Athletic Tracking solutions to bring our client schools the most complete and comprehensive health management software to date. Here are the 2018 Top Magnus Moments:
State immunization laws are becoming more strict so schools are faced with taking on more responsibility in managing their student immunization records. In early 2018, Magnus partnered with STC’s Immslink to help schools streamline their immunization management process through data entry automation. This seamless sync between Magnus and each state's immunization registry provides users with access to the most up to date information, resulting in increased compliance and less time spent on administrative tasks, leaving more time for better student care.
Next came the launch of our Personal Health Portal (PHR) mobile app. This mobile feature provides parents and students with self-service functionality to easily access all of their health data stored within their Magnus account via any mobile device, and in January, the ‘push notification’ feature from the school regarding medication reminders will be released. Any parent or college student who has an active or archived Magnus account and who uses the PHR App, now has access to information entered into their Vital Health Record, including allergies, medications, or any previously completed health forms. The PHR App is available in both the iTunes and Google Play stores.
Later this year, Magnus partnered with FACTS (formerly known as RenWeb) to offer single-sign-on with Magnus for schools using this Student Information System (SIS). The solution integration saves schools and parents time by bringing all student information into one centralized place, without the hassle of managing multiple logins. This partnership limits the burden of form collection for both the school and parents, minimizes the risk of private information falling into the wrong hands, and better prepares schools for emergencies.
Family Pay Model
We understand that schools often operate on razor-thin budgets, so this payment model allows for schools to pass some or all of the cost of implementing the Magnus solution as the school's tuition or technology fees. Schools can enjoy the full benefits of electronic form collection and easy digital charting, and parents are able to receive automated email reminders and immediate access to emergency information.
Most recently, Magnus partnered with SportsWare to offer the most comprehensive athletic tracking solution available. This partnership offers schools the best of both worlds: in addition to the Magnus Portal, Athletic departments will have the ability to track treatment notes and record injuries in real time with the SportsWare solution. Athletic staff will have seamless on-the-go access to over 130 standard reports, sideline concussion protocols, and a video library full of step-by-step exercises for athletes recovering from an injury.
