The SHIFT (“School Health Information Framework leveraging Technology”) proposes a visionary shift in students’ health and wellness – leading to an improved educational experience. SHIFT describes an approach for improving/harmonizing the school’s programs, services, initiatives, information, and technology related to a student’s health, namely, a standards-based framework that promotes advancements in School Health Technology and Services.
Primary and secondary school-aged children may have certain health care concerns that need to be accommodated within the educational system. This project envisions and describes the ingredients for a SHIFT (School Health Innovation Framework leveraging Technology) in school health technology and/or services for school-aged children worldwide and in any type of school (e.g., public, private, career-technical, military, cyber, charter, advanced placement at a college, or other).
Schools are mandated (by legislation) to provide certain health care services to students and to manage certain health-related information. That information ought to be collected and exchanged electronically in a standards-based manner and may serve as a resource for all stakeholders involved with the student's health (including parents, guardians, administrators, nursing staff, food-service personnel, care providers, emergency personnel, and athletic trainers). School administrators and legislators would benefit from having ready access to a repository of school health information guidance and applicable school health information standards. Note: reporting guidelines may differ across various district, state, regional, and international boundaries.
