How School-based Telehealth Helps Students

Students who are in class regularly are more likely to graduate. Making care available in schools helps keep students present and learning.

School-based telehealth can help:

Spot health issues sooner, provide care on the spot and alert a student’s primary care provider.

Support a student’s emotional and mental health using appointments with behavioral specialists during school hours.

Manage chronic issues like asthma and diabetes, reducing symptoms and emergency room visits.

Catch dental issues and let a student’s family and primary care provider know so the student can see a dentist.
