The Oregon-Davis School Corporation has created a partnership with the Health Centers and the Indiana Rural Health Association (IRHA) that is a blessing for our students! Our corporation received a grant from the IRHA that has allowed us to implement and maintain a telehealth clinic at no cost to the corporation. The telehealth clinic is located at our elementary school and is available to all Oregon-Davis School Corporation students.
What is telehealth?
- Telehealth utilizes telecommunication technology that allows a student to be seen by a healthcare provider without leaving school.
- Telehealth clinic visits are conducted at the Elementary School in a private room.
- An on-site medical assistant utilizes special equipment to virtually connect with a licensed healthcare provider.
- The healthcare provider sees a live feed of what the on-site medical assistant is examining (ears, eyes, throat, skin) as well as listening to (heart, lungs).
- A parent or guardian’s insurance will be billed for services provided in the clinic. If a parent or guardian does not have insurance, services provided will be provided on a sliding-scale based on the household income.
- Attached is a brochure with additional information.
The telehealth clinic is open 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM on days that school is in session. For a student to receive services in the telehealth clinic, a parent consent form must be signed. The enrollment form is attached. Forms are also available at each school, on each school’s facebook page, or on our website.
