School-Based Medicine

USING THE LATEST IN HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY TO DELIVER CONVENIENT, EXPERT CARE TO YOU AND YOUR CHILD!

Our school-based telemedicine program is designed to bring the expertise of Freeman Health System’s primary care providers to schools throughout our area. If a student, faculty or staff member is at school and becomes ill, getting quick treatment is the main priority.

Our program is designed with schools, parents, students, faculty and staff in mind. Our goals are to reduce the number of outbreaks of contagious illnesses, save time, reduce lost school days, all while parents no longer have to leave work.

We understand it can often times be difficult for parents to suddenly leave work, pick up their child from school and take them to their healthcare provider. This is why Freeman Health System is happy to offer school-based telehealth. By enrolling in our program, a school nurse will virtually connect with a Freeman Health System physician or certified nurse practitioner. Students, faculty and staff can be diagnosed, treated and have prescriptions sent to their pharmacy without having to leave the school nurse’s office.

 

HOW IT WORKS:

School-based telehealth uses computer and video technology to connect to an experienced healthcare provider at Freeman Health System, should students, faculty or staff become ill at school. By enrolling and utilizing the school based telehealth program at the onset of illness:

  1. The school nurse will determine if a Freeman Health System provider is needed to diagnose illnesses and provide convenient treatment.
  2. Parents of sick students will be contacted with appointment information and invited to participate via telephone.
  3. An appointment will be scheduled with the Freeman Health System provider.
  4. The school nurse will connect with the Freeman Health System provider using video technology.
  5. The school nurse and the Freeman Health System provider will conduct an examination.
  6. If necessary, the Freeman Health System provider will submit prescriptions to the patient’s pharmacy of choice.
  7. Freeman Health System will send a summary of the visit to the patient’s primary care provider to continue treatment, if authorized.
