introducing: telehealth at school

  • Telehealth Video

  • Washington County Schools have partnered with Niswonger Children’s Hospital and Ballad Health Medical Associates Urgent Care to provide students and staff with a convenient option to access high-quality care using virtual health technology while at school.

    With permission, a school nurse will use live video technology to connect the student or staff member with an off-site Ballad Health Medical Associates Urgent Care doctor, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. The urgent care provider will have the ability to diagnose, listen to the patient’s heart and lungs, order basic labs and send any needed prescriptions to the patient’s pharmacy – all without leaving the school nurse’s office.

    Our goal is to provide quality healthcare that reduces time away from school or work.
