School Based Telehealth
School Based Telehealth brings the skilled services of our experienced pediatricians directly to your child while in school. If your child becomes sick with a common or mild condition, the school will facilitate a video visit on the spot.
School Presenters can access their account here.
There are numerous benefits to this program:
- Your child can see the provider from school, so you won’t have to leave work to take him or her to the doctor’s office.
- The video is on demand, so you won’t have to make an appointment days out. This means your child can get back to school quicker.
- You can video conference with the provider or join the visit by phone.
- Prescriptions can be called in immediately to the pharmacy of your choice and picked up on the way home.
- Services are covered by both private insurance and Medicaid.
How does it work?
- You can enroll your child at any time, even on the day he or she gets sick.
- A school resource will contact you if they believe your child would benefit from a video visit.
- A school resource will connect your child to a Children’s Hospital provider via video.
- The provider will then connect to you either through video or by phone.
- The provider will make a medical determination and call in any prescriptions that may be needed.
