"So that's why we always try to look for a good product. Something that's going to help our department and help the college and actually you know help the students."
Watch Sharon Land and Marilyn Hamel of Oberlin College discuss how NueMD's Immunization Compliance Manager and monthly reports help run their clinic.
Marilyn: We are a small liberal arts college- under 3,000 students. We're a college and a conservatory. We provide primary healthcare to the students and that involves wellness and sickness, well-woman's care.
Sharon: What I like about the Nuesoft program is the immunization. On our campus about a year ago we had an incident with MMR. We didn't know our students- who had MMR injections or not.
And with the Nuesoft program just recently we started making sure that information was in the immunization area. And so we were able to pull that information off on who had not had those injections on campus without going through the 3,000 charts that we have. And that was wonderful for the nurse and staff.
Marilyn: We also use it for my monthly reports. No only does it give us the numbers in regards to how many patients the providers have seen, it also breaks down what the nurses see in regards to like how many injections, flu-shots besides immunizations. With the providers, it breaks down the type of patients that we see. And that's important in regards to- you look to see how many sick visits you may have vs. well visits.
Sharon: We were using paper and pencil. With this system it's just so user friendly. It's not as many steps. And you get the results that you need. It gives us the ability to not be tied up with paperwork when we need be seeing students.
Marilyn: So that's why we always try to look for a good product. Something that's going to help our department and help the college and actually you know help the students.
