When a student begins to feel bad, the priority for both the parent and the school is to consult with a medical professional. Traditionally, this involves leaving the school to visit a doctor’s office. We design school-based health centers where everything needed for a thorough evaluation of the patient can be done on school premises.
Telemedicine can facilitate rapid diagnosis and treatment by allowing FQHCs to remotely access diagnostic tools and consultations with healthcare professionals. This can significantly reduce the time it takes to identify health issues and initiate appropriate treatment, improving patient outcomes and satisfaction.
