Parents Important Information
We are excited to announce that Broward County Public Schools is adopting the CareDox Electronic Health Records system. CareDox which will serve as a tool for parents/guardians to interact online with healthcare personnel at their child’s school in consultation with their health care needs.
The benefits of CareDox include:
Provide medical information electronically between parents/guardians, healthcare personnel and school staff
Provide timely notifications when your child visits the healthcare personnel’s office
Provide updated health information that is readily available to your child’s school
For more information on how CareDox helps schools and for parent’s frequently asked questions, you may visit: www.caredox.com/schools and www.caredox.com/category-faq/parents.
Broward Parent Enrollment Process:
Enrolling in the CareDox Parent Portal will be the fastest and most secure way for parents to provide annual up-to-date health information to your child’s school. The parent enrollment process, which will happen through the CareDox Parent Portal, is outlined below.
You will be receiving an email communication from CareDox for health enrollment
o If you have not provided your student(s) school with an email address, please do so as soon as possible.
The health enrollment email will contain a unique link to your child’s health profile.
When you open the link you will be prompted to create an account and complete annual health related questions that pertain to your child.
Completion of the health form will take 5–30 minutes.
If you have any questions during the enrollment process, please contact email@example.com.
