Historical Illnesses & Injury Types

Configure the Historical Illnesses & Injury Types That Will Be Tracked by Your School

Virtually any illness or injury can be tracked as part of a student's medical history. You can track these illnesses and injuries in as many or as few categories / types as you desire. You will be able to query on these illness and injuries, so really think about the types that make sense for your school.

For example, before a field trip to play paint-ball you may want to run a query to identify all students who have had orthopedic surgery in the last year. If you have a type for "orthopedic surgery," you will be able to query on it.
