Tired of Shuffling Through Paperwork All Summer?

Posted by Kerri Wade on May 26, 2017

When you think of Summer vacation, what do you think of? Are you thinking of relaxation and time off or are you thinking of all of the form preparation needed for the next school year? With Summer quickly approaching, re-enrollment season is right around the corner. For many nurses and administrators, this means these next few months will consist of trying to collect and track down student health forms in order to prepare for admissions and re-enrollment. This process is a very time-consuming task for the majority of schools. Don’t forget about the endless calls coming in on a daily basis from parents with questions about requirements, forms and compliance... Summer vacation that should be used to de-stress becomes one of the busiest times for both schools and parents!

The Annual Report is Back!

Posted by Kerri Wade on April 27, 2017

The 2016-17 Annual Report ‘Health Care and Athletics Trends in Independent Schools’ is now available for download!


Four years ago, Magnus decided to take all of the feedback we had received over the years about the lack of information on Independent Schools and began the journey to change that. In 2014, with the help of Health Staff professionals, we published our first Annual Research Report of Independent School Health Services. Since then, the report has helped to foster a nationwide, information sharing community to compare data and share best practices. The research that came out of the 2013-14 Annual Report was so beneficial that we decided to conduct further research with our next Research Questionnaire and  Magnus published our second Annual Report in 2015.

Upload From Your Mobile Phone

Parents can now upload their documents directly to the website from their mobile devices, no app needed! Uploading is accessible directly from the web-browser. Say goodbye to those annoying “Please download the App from the App Store” notifications. Uploading a photo of your form is now so simple! We’ve broken it down into four easy steps:

1) Open the webpage

2) Snap a photo of your document

3) Upload it

4) Save it


Fill Out Forms Online

Tired of forms that you have to download, print, sign, scan, upload, and then wait for a response? Yeah, us too. With Magnus Health’s newly enhanced online forms feature, the process of filling out forms has been cut in half and is more streamlined than ever. Now, schools have the option to have users complete questions and provide information right from their computers via drop down menus, text boxes, radio buttons and more. This will reduce the amount of printing forms and wasting paper. Now the only time you need to print a form is if a physician’s signature is required.

Concussions occur more frequently than reported, according to Dr. Clark Elliott (www.clarkelliott.com). Often times, people simply bump their heads, or have an unrecognized event in which there is only a short moment of confusion, or disruption of thought. As a concussion sufferer and author of “The Ghost in My Brain: How a Concussion Stole My Life and How the New Science of Brain Plasticity Helped Me Get It Back” Dr. Elliott knows first hand about living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
