CareDox for Parents and Guardians

What is CareDox?

CareDox is a comprehensive digital health suite for K-12 schools. We help school nurses deliver care, keep students safe and connect with parents. By increasing efficiency in school health offices, we allow nurses to send students back to the classroom as quickly as possible, allowing them to maximize their learning time.

How will this affect me?

As an official partner of your child's school district, CareDox takes the registration forms that your district uses and digitizes them so you can fill them out online. You will not be asked to provide any information that your school has not asked for before.

CareDox also connects parents to school nurses to inform you of what's happening with your child's health.

This helps parents in multiple ways:

  • No need to fill out each form every year; once information is on CareDox, you can just update the parts that change from year-to-year.
  • Receive notifications from the school nurse to ensure that you know what happens with your child's health at school, when it happens.
  • Securely share health information with schools, sports teams, camps and daycare programs, as well as add or remove access to these records in real time.
  • Access your family's health information online from anywhere, anytime.

Who has access to this information?

CareDox is a digital implementation of the school's previous health information system. Access to various pieces of information will be restricted to the same people who previously had access. Therefore, if your district's teachers had access to allergy information and emergency contacts, they will be granted that same permission through CareDox.

Permissions are granted on a role-by-role basis. School nurses will have access to all health information on file, while administrators, teachers and coaches will be granted information based on what they need to know as determined by your school district.
