Telehealth Program

 New School-Based Telehealth Program 
For all students and school staff members 

As parents of school-aged children, it is inevitable to receive a call from the school announcing you have a sick child to pick up. Thus, the chaos for many ensues: Taking time off work, transportation issues, finding back-up care for sibling(s) while you wait for hours at a Drs. Office or ER (exposing you and your child to other illnesses) – the list goes on and on.
Utilizing ESE Telehealth, you can eliminate many of these days by having your child accessed and treated for acute illnesses within minutes, in the school nurse’s station. You will have full access to your child’s medical records and any prescriptions will be waiting for you at the pharmacy of your choosing.

How it works

  • Student goes to school nurse with symptom, for example, rash on arm.
  • School Nurse contacts parent/guardian, explains symptoms and ask if they want to connect with a Provider.
  • Once parent approves, the nurse can then schedule the appointment via ESE’s secure electronic health record database.
  • ESE will assign a provider within 5-10 minutes and then the nurse can connect.
  • Once connected, the nurse is now the hands of the Provider. They will direct them to use the stethoscope to check the lungs and heart.  She will then have the nurse switch the camera over to the dermoscope to check the rash in High resolution. 
  • The provider can then prescribe a topical ointment to treat the specific rash. The ESE Provider will send it to the pharmacy of the parent/guardians choice.
  • ESE is very similar to any other doctor’s office. They accept all major Insurance companies, as well as self pay.  For example, if you have a $35.00 Copay at the doctor, you will most likely have a similar Co-Pay for ESE.  All insurance companies/policies differ.
