How School-based Telehealth Helps Families

When a child can receive immediate medical care at school, life becomes a little easier for the whole family.

With school-based telehealth:

Parents can stay at work.

In-school medical care can sometimes save parents the trip to pick up a student from school to take them to the clinic.

Parents can stay in control.

Parents will consent to each telehealth visit, can join the visit remotely, and receive detailed notes from the visit afterward.

Families can get help with behavioral issues.

Concerns like anxiety and depression can affect the entire family. In-school treatment can help the child—and everyone in the home.

Parents have help with a student’s health issues.

When a student can receive medical care at school, parents learn about and address health problems sooner, when they are more easily treated.
