Health check-ups in school are important as they help:

To assess normal development of the child
To keep track of immunization schedule
Early detection of disease / abnormalities, which when treated in time, allows the child to lead a normal life
This preventive check-up data becomes the baseline for future reference

Furthermore, the recent mortality of a child due to an asthmatic attack in a school at Delhi has been an eye-opener for all of us – it depicts our deficiency in recognizing and managing basic health problems of school children. It also emphasizes the need to develop a concrete and comprehensive ‘School Health Check-up’ program.

To that effect, we need a tool that helps to systematically store every child’s comprehensive health information, inclusive of immunization records, growth charts, pathology, radiology and other reports in one place. Such a tool is ideal for all – children, parents as well as the school administration.

Keeping the above in view, Chowgule Mediconsult brings you the comprehensive ‘School Health Check-up’ program – SHARE (School health assessment & e-recording) which:
