Article: The Use of Telehealth in School-Based Health Centers

The national School-Based Health Alliance shared a new article, “The Use of Telehealth in School-Based Health Centers,” which was published yesterday in Global Pediatric Health.

The National School-Based Health Care Census is the first national survey to describe characteristics of school-based health centers (SBHCs) employing telehealth.  The article describes characteristics of SBHCs using telehealth, specifically, the growth of telehealth in traditional SBHCs that use technology to complement onsite providers, and a newer and growing delivery model of school-based health care where primary care and other services are provided exclusively through telehealth.  The article contributes to a larger conversation about the evolution of telehealth in general, and how technology can be leveraged to broaden the reach of health care to underserved school-aged populations.
